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.

On This Day in Weird, April 16...

1976: A schoolboy from Helston, Cornwall, sees and photographs a "weird animal with two humps and a long neck like a snake" swimming upriver between Toll Point and Gew. He further describes it as "'slimy, black and about twenty-five feet long."

1993: Alexandr Mikhailovych Kondratov, Russian linguist, biologist, and first author of a Russian monograph about dinosaurs surviving into modern times, dies in St. Petersburg.
