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.

Picking up hitchhikers is not a safe thing.  A dangerous hitchhiker may look absolutely harmless.  However, this one didn't.  It was back in the 1970s when four girls reported this shocking story.  They were driving from Milwaukee when they saw this person trying to hitch a lift.  They noticed at once that it wasn't your normal hitchhiker.  To begin with, he was naked, always a bad sign in these circumstances.  He was also green, bald and goggle-eyed.  The girls did not stop  but sped onwards as he viewed their passing vehicle.  But then, in their mirror, they saw another car slow down to give him a ride.

I can only wonder what could induce anyone to slow down for such a being.  I am afraid to imagine what might have happened when this unusual passenger boarded the car.  However, there is no sequel to this story.  We do not have the least idea what the outcome was.  Perhaps it's just as well.
