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.

Castell Coch in Wales lies near Cardiff/Caerdydd, the Welsh capital.  There is said to be treasure underneath it guarded by three Great Eagles.  Between October and March it is said their cries echoed throughout the land roundabout.

According to legend, there have been at least two attempts to secure the treasure:  in the 17th Century a group of heavily armed men tried to destroy the aquiline gardens, but were driven off; in the 18th Century a similar attempt was made by a group of veteran soldiers, but they were no more successful than the first group.

The implication is these eagles were of an unknown kind.  Certainly, they seem to have had extremely long lifespans.  They were probably conceived as paranormal.
