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.

We're going back to 1966.  In that year John Ridgway and Chay Blythe undertook the challenge of rowing a boat across the Atlantic Ocean.  On the night of July 25th, Ridgway was rowing while Blythe snoozled.  Ridgway looked to starboard and beheld a long creature, perhaps 35' or more.  It was lit with a phosphorescence that reminded Ridgway of neon lights, heading for the boat.  However, there was no collision, as it dived under the boat, to come up briefly on the far side.  I don't know if Blythe actually woke up to observe this singular phenomenon.  Perhaps he just snoozled on.
