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.

One of the strangest monsters in cryptozoology must surely be the Nightcrawler, which has appeared in indistinct videos (two of them) taken in the region of Fresno (California).  It is very slender and does not appear to have arms.  The suggestion that what the videos show is a pair of trousers hanging on a line cannot be ruled out.  However, it is said to feature in the folklore of the local Indians.

There is, of course, a kind of earthworm called a nightcrawler, used as fish-bait, with which the above creature should not be confused.
