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.

This is one of those mystery animals of which there is no picture that I can discover.  It was reported in 1948 by farmers in Indiana.  It was also seen by police officer L. Daniels. He said it was like something out of a horror film.  It had long legs, a big head with pointed ears and small eyes.  Annoyingly, I cannot trace my source for this creature.  However, if you look out the window and see it in your backyard, do get in touch.

This is one of those creatures that I would describe as isolates.  It hasn't been reported in numbers - just the one creature.  Did it wander in from some other universe or dimension?  Is it paranormal?  This is the question that must attend all sightings of strange creatures of which only isolated examples are known and which display what we would consider bizarre characteristics.  This is especially so in cases where there are multiple witnesses.
