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.

In modern times the name Red Wolf (Canis rufus) is applied to an endangered kind of wolf in the United States.  However, in days agone there was an unrelated kind of  mystery wolf that was red  in color, reported from France and variously known there as the chien rouge or loup rouge.  This creature seems to have been intensely  red.  It had a tendency to attack cattle, which did not endear it to the local agricultural community.  One would suspect it of being a fox, were it not for the fact that foxes would have been well known to the populace and they would have been able to identify it if it were such.  Its identity has never been established.
Peradventure it was some kind of mutant.

Other red cryptids include:

The Red Cat, reported from Cornwall (England) in 1995.

The Red Cheetah, of which it is suspected that there is a population in Tennessee.

The Red Beast, reported from Ukraine in 2009.
