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.

Here's an old incident, which supposedly took place in 1891.  Two  ladies in a buggy observed a strange creature.  It boasted wings, a head with a beak and clawed feet.  W.R. Benedict, writing in the Fortean Times, suggested it was a griffin.


Some of you may have heard of a beast called the Hippogriff.  This is not a genuine mythical animal.  It was made up by the Italian poet Ludovico Ariosto in his chivalric epic, Orlando Furioso.
