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.

I am greatly interested in cryptids in Native American/First Nation lore and so I am going now to British Columbia to look into a creature in the beliefs of the Bella Coola, a nation numbering about 600 members.

The sniniq has been described as something like a sasquatch, but there is a notable difference.  The sniniq has a defense mechanism which appears to be unique.

Should a sniniq wish to attack you, it reverses its eyeballs.  No, don't try this yourself, you might do yourself a damage.  From its eyes it will shoot out beams, which render any adversary unconscious.

This sounds somewhat far-fetched, but it is not impossible, so, if I ever chance upon a sniniq, I will endeavor not to annoy it.
