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.

This singular case is one that will surely be regarded as exceptional.  J.R. Harding writing in Journal of the Society of Medicine (89/101, 600) chronicles this unusual medical item of which a synopsis is to be found in The Psychologist Vol.28, No. 7.

The patient was male and aged 45.  The procedure he underwent was to determine whether he had an undescended testicle.  On computer investigation of the scrotum, the left testicle was found to be a simulacrum of an horrendous ghost screaming.  Testicles with such Lovecraftian overtones are rare indeed.  The formation, however, seems to have been entirely natural with no paranormal element: the shape into which the testicle had formed was quite coincidental.
