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.

The Nawao, in Hawaiian tradition, were large humanoids who lived by hunting and are now (probably) extinct.  Tradition has it they were overcome by the Menehune, another legendary race who are supposed to have arrived later.  The Menehune were regarded as diminutive, but there is evidence for their actual existence, perhaps a race of pygmies.  One website averred that the two races were the same, despite clear differences.  Another theory is that neither race is really native Hawaiian at all.  Belief in them was introduced by Europeans, who had giants and dwarfs in their own legends.
