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 Mitchell River in Australia has a tributary called the Woolshed Creek, which flows by a cave called the Den of Nargun.  But what, I hear you ask, is the Nargun?

The Nargun is a creature in the lore of the Aborigines.  It is composed partly of flesh and partly of stone, is female and is of humanoid configuration.  It was known to abduct humans.  It was difficult to defend yourself against for, should you cast a spear or boomerang at it, once it struck its target it would come flying back at the assailant.

In fact, the cave seems to have been used for women's initiations.  Perhaps the Nargun was invented to keep intruders away.

Below, you can see a picture of the cave.
