Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

OLL LEWIS: Yesterday’s News Today


This Monday’s Monday Movie stems from a conversation between Lizzy and I on facebook; it turned out the poor girl has never seen Tron! She’ll be getting a copy soon but here to whet her appetite, and that of anyone else who somehow avoided the greatest sci-fi film ever made, is a trailer:
But as well as that here’s a link to a trailer for Tron Legacy (AKA Tron 2), which is coming out next year, if the trailer is anything to go by they’ve done the original justice and then some:
And now, the news:

Bald songbird discovered in Laos
Chimps born to appreciate music
Can the World's Fisheries Survive Our Appetites?
Dallas plans to give control of zoo to private society
Honeybees warn of risky flowers

It’s always best to ‘bee’ cautious.
