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.

Let us go back to 1910.  In July of that year a couple named Schroder were sitting outside.  They saw "birds" that did not appear to have feathers flying overhead.  These birds were of very great size.  They had long heads.  In fact, they sound awfully like Pterosaurs.  Although Pterosaurs are supposedly extinct, a surprising number of creatures resembling them have been reported in modern times, both in the United States and elsewhere.  The fossil record, of course, tells us they died out a long time ago; but what must be borne in mind is that the fossil record is incomplete.  Maybe nobody told the Pterosaurs they were extinct!
