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.

No, that isn't Godzilla, it's a Tyrannosaurus Rex, but it looks as though it might be a relation.  Godzilla was the gigantic lizard who appeared in a number of Japanese films and my spies tell me there will be a new Godzilla film in 2014.  In this one Godzilla appears to be a goodie, fighting off enemies of mankind.

However, you may not know that among some Conspiracy Theorists there is a belief that a Japanese group has been making real life Godzillas, whom it is going to send to the United States to exact vengeance on the Americans.  This, I feel, is absurd, but it just shows you some people will believe anything.

Other conspiracy theorists maintain that a secret body in the USA have bred flying elephants.  They actually date this to 1983.  What makes me skeptical of this is, What do you achieve by making flying elephants?  They can hardly expect them to penetrate foreign lands to spy unnoticed.  The sanitary ramifications I will leave to your imagination.  Incidentally, the conspiracy buffs  inform us the venture was called Project Dumbo.

Well, well - is every elephant given a small encouraging mouse as a companion and a flock of crows to send him on his way?
