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.

SPEARFINGER

Have you heard of Spearfinger or, as the Cherokee called her, Ut'lun'ta, 'Spear pointer'?  This terrifying creature was supposed to have wandered about in days agone in Tennessee and North Carolina, clad in a stony garment which rendered her impervious to arrows.  One of her fingers was shaped like a spear, which she used to kill people and steal their livers, for a meal or a snack.  She was a shapeshifter and could look like an old woman.  She eventually met her end by falling into a trap, a pit that the Cherokee had set up for her.  There the Cherokee managed to kill her, not without difficulty.

Is there any truth behind this legend?  Who can tell?
