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.

White elephants are not really white - they can be pink, brown or gray, but not really white.  Yet showman P.T. Barnum was able to display a truly white elephant.  How had he managed this?

P T Barnum

The answer he confided to an acquaintance/.  He had had the elephant covered in whitewash or paint.  This possibly was not good for the elephant, but Barnum got away with it.
