At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

DRAGON-WORM

Here's an historical cryptid that is not well known, but worth remembering.  The term "dragon-worm" has been applied to a strange water monster which was reported in Switzerland in 1468.  It swam out of Lake Lucerne and into the River Reuss.  Details of its size and speed could not be determined.

There are quite a number of accounts of water monsters in  Continental Europe that do not seem to swim frequently into the cryptozoological radar.
