A blog for the United States branch of the global Centre for Fortean Zoology
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.

BACK FROM THE WEIRD WEEKEND
The Weird Weekend 2015 is now over and everyone who took part is recovering. There were some fascinating lectures this year and in due course details will appear on the CFZ UK website (www.cfz.org.uk). Jonathan Downes, grand panjandrum of the CFZ, seemed reasonably pleased and we were informed that next year there will be two Weird Weekends - the normal one and Weird Weekend North, hosted by Glen Vaudry in April. Jon told us it was his ultimate intention to have a US Weird Weekend, which should attract a considerable following. He's even hoping to have one in Australia some day.
Above you see Lars Thomas, who gave us a fascinating lecture on microcryptozoology, or, if you prefer, bugs that might exist.
