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.

On This Day in Weird, August 13...

1521: Conquistador Hernán Cortés captured Cuauhtémoc, ruler of Tenochtitlán, claiming the city for Spain and marking the end of the Aztec Empire. Cortés appointed himself the new ruler and renamed Tenochtitlán Mexico City. But was that really the end of the story? In 2008, before he battled Lavalantula or got blown away by successive Sharknados, renowned Hispanic TV star Ian Ziering portrayed Cortés in Aztec Rex, also known as Tyrannosaurus Azteca, revealing the long-hidden truth about the conqueror's greatest challenge. Yep, you guessed it, a ravenous living dinosaur!
