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 was recently reading Eric Frank Russell's Great World Mysteries when I came across one of the most horrific sea-monster reports.  I had read of it before somewhere, but here was a chance to refresh my memory.

A diver in the South Pacific was somewhat alarmed to find a shark in his vicinity.  He lowered himself in the water, until the shark was about twenty feet higher than he.  The diver then came across a huge chasm of unguessed depth.  Up from this chasm there rose a great creature, colored brown and about an acre in extent.  It doesn't seem to have had discernable features such as eyes.  It was, however, pulsating.  It rose ever higher until it reached the level of the shark and absorbed the fish, which seemed paralysed, into its body.

In the slow and deliberate fashion in which the monster had risen, it sank back once more inot the chasm below.

This incident was reported in 1953.
