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.

PINEAPPLE ATTACK!

Do you ever wonder why a pineapple has a slightly bitter taste?  The answer is that it is attacking your tongue.  Yes, pineapples contain bromelian, which is made up of enzymes, and this substance levies war on your tongue and cheeks.  But don't worry - once you swallow it your innards neutralize it.
