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.

THE SEA COBRA

A horrifying sea serpent, hooded like a cobra and capable of extremely swift movement, which fought two men on the Alaskan shore.  John Ross, a deputy marshal, told the story to the Juneau City Mining Record in 1894.  He saw S.A. Keller lifted into the air in the creature's mouth.  He shot the beast, making it release Keller, then shot it again and succeeded in cutting off the end of its tail, which was ashore, and it wriggled back into the water.  The creature then swam off.  Ross estimated its length at 200 feet.
