  1. Doesnt matter la, ugly or cantik..Is that really a mermaid??!! lol..Someone must be pulling our legs..Hmm..Now im confused..What the heck is that creature? Could it be another type of alien..? Yea who knows..amphibious alien!

  2. A friend of mine noted that the camera watermark in the bottom right corner of each photo is similar to the ones found on ebay. Perhaps someone who is better at looking for stuff on ebay can get to the bottom of this. ;)

    Whoever made it did a nice piece of work!

  3. well,i don’t know if this is true,or not,but al i can say is taht i have to see it
    alive to believe it,otherwise,i think is just another “fiasco”,just like the chupa cabra and bigfoot,etc……..

  4. confirmed fake – it was an item sold on ebay *before* it was reportedly seen in Malaysian waters. On Ebay, the place mentioned was Florida.

  5. Hey, I think this is so cool. I have done studies on the ocean and have discovered that in myth mermaids were made to protect the ocean. They were not meant to be beautiful or handsome. They were made in fact that if any sailor were to trespass their domain the mermaids would lure them to their lier to be killed, so that the sailors could not get back to land and tell of their secrets. If any sailor escaped to tell the tale no one would believe him and consider him insane. I believe in the inevitable and that we really don’t know what is out there unless we go and find out for ourselves. If it is real I would love to know more about it, however if it is fake then it would be the closest thing to the truth of what mythical mermaids looked like. Awesome

  6. I believe it’s real!!! I was born in Haiti but left at a very early age so I have not got the chance to actually see one in person. I remember my parents telling my other siblings and I stories (trust me they were not pleasant stories) about mermaids and voodoo priests and how their friends got to see mermaids or met a person that died that was brought back to life. Also, if you ask any haitian that was actually born in Haiti and lived there long enough, they will all tell you “Pa jan’m soti deyo a swe”, means don’t ever go outside at night. Scary, huh? My point is who has time on their hands to be making up stories and I speak for my people in Haiti. And for everyone that think it’s fake, how about going to Haiti yourself, camp by the ocean by YOURSELF, no damn cameras, no damn videotapes, and watch out to see if you see a mermaid. When you do see one you can think twice about what you believe and don’t belive BUT that’s if you make it through the night without them “so called fake” mermaids keeping you hostage. Ya ppl just urk my nerves! If only it happened to you, you’ll realize how dumb you’ll feel!

    • sorry to be the one to burst your bubble, but its done by a taxidermist, and its not the only one. he does them out of animal bones and skin, and there are other oddities he does as an art form. its really cool still even though its fake.

  7. Total fake. Why would an highly adapted aquatic animal have a nasal passage??? or for that matter such a non aquatic shaped head. Eyes should be on the side of the face not on the front. All aquatic animals have vision that evolved based on the side of the head this is a rule becuase they can see all around for predators. And the tail fin????? all wrong. it would have to be a vertical tail fin not horizontal. I think whoever made this puppet needed to do more research on marine biology. meh. Ive seen 3 year olds make clay monsters more convincing that this one.

  8. i think its not true it could be made by an artist,and its obviusly not real because they say that the mermaid is found in othyer country i’d search the internet then i found that picture too and said that it is found in philipines,switserlan,africa etc..

  9. i believe in mermaids but think,why would a merman be in that shore and does that mermaid have nostril?? look at it’s skin it looks like a rubber not a fresh scaly fish thing observe the picture.

  10. 2 things…..true and not.
    i think is true because haitien really does do freaky voodoo stuff there.
    i met many haitiens and i still do..and they are tellein me that these things really exist,(bringin dead ppl back to life but they wont be the same as they where before they died ,lots of black magic,and turning ppl in too animals.but MERMAID, damn they gettin better and better every time…
    and second i dont think its true because the media did’nt react to this artical… so its totaly fake.

  11. well i don’t really know what to say about this.. I always wanted to believe that Mermaids were real but there wasn’t really any proof. I think this picture here his a Fake but I do believe they exsist somewere.

  12. I think its fake…and if mermaids are real..they better look like freaken Darryl Hannah in Splash or Ariel…not like that ugly lookinh thing.

  13. O gawd r u serious!?!? Somebody has been watching like the “secret” version of The Little Mermaid! O gawd, Im gonna go kill myself now…o gawd!

  14. its fake its fake i tell u dont belive this okay this is jdksjfejrwernidjnmdfjsjjaaaa okay dont belive it this i repeat this is hdhshahhahhhhaaaagagigiiiiiiiiijdkshaduiaskaaa

  15. OMG How sutpid can you get this is sooo *censored* fake you can even see where the fish used for the tail was cut open!!!!! Oh and Yoshi if u had done a true study of ocean creatures you would realize that all marine biologists agree that ths is sooo fake it was made by a fan of the celebrated taxidermy artist Juan Cabana!!!! i also think that Verco is right look at how other fish and marine mamals are shaped the head is not streamlined enough

  16. This is a creature made by an Ebay seller named SEAMYSTERY. This creature is made from Real bones & Real skin. I remember him selling this item on Ebay about a year ago. He is on my favorite sellers list and I check on his items periodically. He always has some pretty cool handmade creatures on there & right now he has a mummy on there (buy it now $900). For those of you who say it looks fake, if you see some closeups, you will eat your words

    BEWARE OF PAPA SHANGO!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. I always wanted to see mermaids and if this true, I thank the Almighty father and the person who made it possible for me to see. I dont care how beutiful or ugly as long as it exist. But if is not true damn the person who is trying to be GOD. Pathetic.

  18. i’m so suprised!!!!but i believe it’s real,,but that mermaid is so ugly
    if i see at the television like Little Mermaid movie mermaid is beautiful,,,i believe that’s real,,,,

  19. God’s creation is great man could not invent many more still. I would like to know what researchers explanation in this, so far they did not concentrated?
    I read stories in my childwood. I really want to see it, if it is true it should preserve.

  20. well… for starters… thats one butt ugly thing. second of all. mermaids dont look like aliens. i hope mermaids are real because 2 be honest. i think there is. think about it. who made up the myth mermaids? they must have seen 1 to know what it looks lyk. and if they did make it up. how the f*** did it get around all over the world and still be known today. mermaids HAVE to be real. but this one is a total fake… even a 2 year old wouldn’t be convinced. the artist who tried to design this sucks and needs to find the REAL THING. another thing. how did it die. if it was attacked where are the marks? if they’re so secretive what killed it? and if they’ve been known for billions of years. they’re still out there and that one above doesnt look very old to die of old age. honestly… they am real but this artist is one dumb f**ker.

  21. I think an alien came on earth and raped a fish……i think it may be the same thing which happend in the Us..the found a Baby Dragon..and discovered it was fake long after. ..But if it’s true then alle my excuses for those who believes.Nature is not an exact science..we have been doing mistakes and misunderstand many things for years..This maybe true or…….for you to see…

  22. yyyikkk! this is really ugly and scary, i bet this must be a freak clone and outcast creature who got into an accident. looks like a buffalo head cross with a large leather jacket fish by chance, also reminds me of jar jar binks in the star wars prequel, i hope this is the one and only, can you imagine when a diver swims in and see this , it will sure blast anyone into the twilights!

  23. they are real. in the deepest parts of the ocean where we cannot reach due to air pressure are creatures that survive on carbon like we survive on oxygen. we don’t know for sure whats down there but there is evidence. it’s funny how people can believe things that are written in magazines but can’t believe things cause we can’t see them… just cause we can’t see air doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
    if you don’t believe me go on google and type in mermaid then go to images and have a look. there is enough evidence and i don’t know why scientist haven’t payed attention.

  24. omfg is tht real?!?!?! lool x i personally believe in mermaids coz the person who said go on google or woteva i did nd theyre nasty creatures when theyre dead lmaoo!!

  25. by the looks of that thing it must have starved to may have got lost when it was looking for food or some thing and got to near land and the tide pulled it in so it got hurt by the rocks or a coral reef or something like that,then it must of got washed up and died of lack of water!!!

  26. OOOOOOOOR it’s real and we are being blinded into believing it’s fake by the under cover agent people. you just dont know!

  27. Thats a fake. The eyes should be on the side of his head like every other creature that lives in water. Now im not gonna say that mermaids etc. aren’t real… I don’t know. The sea is still a big secret to us, we dont know what kind of creatures do live in the deepest places of the seas…
    I mean, do you remember when those enourmous squids came up from the sea? We dont know anything about the sea.

  28. i think this mermaid is true, maybe this is the reall appearance of a mermaid, well i am not really sure but from where i come from some of the fishermen have seem something like mermaid but they are not really sure whether it really excist or not. maybe they do.

  29. Do you guys believe in destiny???? Well I think that this mermaid is for real…if you guys don’t think its true then how come movies and those stuff do act mermaid..mermaid was not invent but I think there were lots in the past where human gets the idea of mermaid,..Weo I am from the island of Tonga and we were suprised to heard this news because we never seen such things but I think that it is true….but who is the one who take pics of this mermaid…if he touch the mermaid that it is real than I think that it is true….

  30. People, people, people…Did any of you go to school–EVER? Gosh; As “cool” as the idea is, did you take care to notice the way the MerMAN (No, it does not have breasts people, it is not a “MAID”//FEMALE!) is formed? Take a look yourself…Check out its ribs. It appears as “if it had lungs”. No gills…it’s nose-oh wait! Sea creatures don’t have noses like humans! Neither do they have nostril passages leading to lungs. Have fun taking a better look at the photograph…Btw; Gullable is written on your ceiling.

  31. FAKE, and here’s why…

    1- The media would have responded if there was sufficient proof of this “merman” being real.

    2- Look at its body. It’s like…completely rotting. Fine, but the skin would easily have looked more torn, and less in one, smooth peice than it does.

    3- Its eyes haven’t rotted away. And, compared to the rest of its body—they should have by now…

    4- It’s the only sighting like…EVER…


    I got curious about this picture, that i had received by mail. So I decided to send a email to the ”NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC” to see if i could get any information. I was exited to know they emailed me back, others were curious like me. This is their email they sended back>

    *So i guess you can get your awnser there ;)

  33. “If you see mammy water oo!, never,never you run away ” lyic from an old folk song by the Great Sir Victor Uwaifo of Benin city,Nigeria

  34. so if this is a fake ill sue the person who brought this thing up. btw the tails reminded me of the fried ‘ikan masin’. the face looks uhmm creepy as usual but that (fake) mermaid sgud use braceses.

  35. these people need to make up their mind…they used the same lame picture and claimed that they found a dead mermaid on Haitis’ beach……that is so lame……lollollolo

  36. well, since there is no new evidence regarding this “ugly” mermaid, its probably just a hoax.
    It would have been exciting if it was a real mermaid though.. lol ;)

  37. I can’t see how National Geographic can say this is “fake?” This is obviously the long lost sister of Paris Hilton! It’s a cover-up! or it should be.

  38. i think its real cause i saw a real life picture of a baby mermaid and i saw one with blonde hai curly orange tail one my selfshe was by a rock. but she didn’t se me cause i was hiding. i thaght if i got to close it would run away

  39. ok……. dude that thing looks like it was made outta effing rubber i mean look at the hands!!! and what is that thing in it’s mouth. pssh. people are trying to get so much attention theese days. but i still belive in mermaids even though they are a myth.also where are the scales?( if there are any…) but dude i think it is fake.

  40. It may be made out of real bones and skin but it was’nt ever alive,I’ve been on the site and I think they make put them in papers for students to write articles and see if people beleive it…

  41. Ok. This thing REALLY scars me… It looks real and fake.. I can’t decide. and for the people saying “It’s not real because it was kept quite…?” I mean, the media seems sorta busy w/ celebs and ailens… anyways, It looks exactly like how I would picture the real version ( non disney ) of a mer person, but no gills? yah I don’t know… So creepy…

  42. Jess: Ok, so thats one fugly mermaid!
    Like OMG, if someone made it, wouldnt they make it a little prettier? Like come’on ppl! Its so real!
    ree: but if it looked pretty then it would be more unbelievable, n y does it have nostrils? epescially that big! won’t fish get in there, oh, and y is it not near any water? hmmm
    jess thats so fake.
    Jess: Yer i kow, i just gettin ppls hopes up, it doesnt even have gills, it has lungs for mushrooms sake! Fish dont have lungs, wake up to yourselves! it is sooooooooooooo F.A.K.E!
    ree: thank you, u agree, plus it looks like plaster
    Jess: I know aye?! Not like scales. stupid mermaid!
    ree: i’d believe it more if it had red hair n a green tale lol ITS SO FAKE.
    Jess: Yup , fake as!
    ree: lets go to haiti for a campout at the beach
    Jess: Totally!

  43. i think it’s half mermaid and a half _______,that’s wat i think.
    from neg.occ silay city…many people here are confuse to that mermaid or something..i don’t know..
    it’s better to play computer games like FLYFF….”joke”
    u people have no concerned to that mermaid or something i don’t know

  44. i think it’s half mermaid and half ______,that’s what i think….you what do you think????it is really true or not???
    luv u rozelle

  45. I think whom ever has created it done a great job. Its too scary . Who has posted it? he could lot of cash making by exhibit it.

    logically its a fake thing. but great creation

  46. Wot is goin on guys? wot’s wit da mermaid thang? i thot they were supposed to be pretty, u no like, Ariel is like gorgeous n ol, wot happened to that one.that is like hideous

  47. ok seriously its obviously fake not only has this already been confirmed but just look at it withought being on drugs and think…. nasal pasages… the chances of such a creature evolving nasal pasages is slim at best and even then by the time it takes the “nose” to completly decompose youll have decomposition all over the body…. why are the eyes still in the skull being one of the first things to decompose..especialy if they are open…. the jaw size on the creature is not nearly large enough to acomidate such large teeth and still adequetly open enough to…… the list goes on and on just look and think about it sheesh

  48. WOW! OMG! that is so cool! ive never seen a real mermaid before! how can you guys say its not real? you only have a short time to live so dont suppress your imagination! have a little bit’o fun wile you can. And get off your computer and do something worth your time!!!!!!!

  49. 70% percent of the earth is water, so we can never really tell what other creatures may live deep in the ocean. Whether the picture is real or a fake, we’ll just have to respect the fact that aside from the creations we’re used to seeing everyday or even in pictures, there really just might be others we haven’t seen, like from other planets, because the earth is just 1 planet in a solar system that’s within a vast galaxy among many other galaxies in the universe. That’s one of the mysteries that God can only reveal.

  50. That look like a real one………but i know that cannot be the truth. coz mermaid doesnt exist………who ever hav done it has a good creation………….****STILL WONDERING TO BELIVE IT OR NOT**** HAHAHAHA


  52. we’ll i do belife in mermaids and if this one is real not nesesary have to have the fin vertical or orizontal or whatever lilke we human we cros gene black and white chinese and what ever hu? do yo belife in god yes? well yo haven’t seen him right, so why so hart to belife in somthing tha we never haven’t seen……..get the point .sight


  53. Dear Javier,

    Belife is actually spelt believe, orizontal? Well i think there is meant to be a ‘H’ in there somewhere.
    Yo? Shouldn’t that be You? And Dude, just everything is so wrong and SHIT!
    Get Your Dictionary out because you got a problem!
    No Pressure or anything, just learn to spell!!!!!!!!!!
    Luv JessRee

    P.S. And who’s on the computer at 5:04 am anyway?! Get a life!




  55. I cant say if this is real or fake but i believe that merpeople are real it might be insane to believe but growing up where i grew up i was told stories all the time about it and there was the old man where i lived that happen to see what he believe was one at night while swimming he did mention that was one of the most scariest moments in his life , my mom used to tell me all the time that back in her days before everything became so bright mermaids would come up rives when it over flow and you would hear bells ringing so you knew they were passing by weird i grew up swimming a lot and people used to tell me am a mermaids child because inside my ears there are a lot of holes and i use to stay in water for hours which was weird but sometimes i tell myself i would love to see one .

  56. Dear Javier,
    No it was just the spelling that pissed us off.
    And i think you will find it’s Boss, not Boos…
    Again you need to learn to spell. What school did you go to?!
    And why would you be looking for mermaids on google anyway?! We found it while searching for Malaysia, so it doesn’t count. WEIRD!
    Just joking, we have nothing against you. Believe what you want, We don’t care.
    Luv JessRee

  57. Hi jessreed.
    Sorry guy’s i dind’t mean to be rude.
    Yes im working on it thanks,that a ugly mermaid, lol

    PS.Keep with the good work guys.

  58. Eeek! That photo sure do scares me! I’m Frustated after seeing this photo. I thought Mermaids is Fascinating, Beautiful, gorgeous. Like the ‘Aquamrine’ movie. And then, it’s the opposite. How Frustating.

  59. right people. i havent read all your comments, but HELLO, its half fish half human, right, thats what a mermaid is, I am a HUMAN i have a NOSE and LUNGS, duh! the top half is human, eg nose lungs, bottom half is fish eg tail!!! OMG you bunch of thickos!

  60. It is hard to believe but i think that it is a Mermaid. I think so because there are alot of creatures that live in the ocean that we dont know about. So i think its true.

  61. -.- ………….can it be believe??……….it looks fake….n due 2 the techonologie nowadays no1 will believe anything like that anymore……but still it got at least 50% true….

  62. What a fake! Think logically.. Firstly, it’s as clean as a new artpiece, without the mud and dirt. Secondly, if it’s found a few days after the water subsided, so where’s the decomposition? Thirdly, the fins are all situated wrongly… what’s the wierd fin grown at only one side when it’s suppose to be on the back like all aquamarines? It can’t swim for nuts. This prop isn’t good enough to be used for the movies with all the flaws.

  63. the arms are too thin\underdeveloped for the webbed hands to be of any use. as was stated the head is not streamlined for swimming and the fins where the ears are supposed to be are just rediculous. as for the chicken skin well we know where the artist got that. what does it eat with those teeth….? hmmm. oh and the skin should be smooth if it’s meant to be a fast swimmer.



  66. it is a fake in order for it to function properly those side fins would actually be on the back not the sides remember part fish not part whale the ones depicted in harry potter are probably the closest and more believable this one looks like it was made by mixing jar jar binks and a fish completely fake you can even see the teeth they look fake and like some one else posted where are the flies and the evidence of decay and something that bright would easily be seen in the water think about most sea fish predators dark on top light on the bottom this does not fit that at all and if you look around the waist line you can see a line that looks like it was connected i think it is a mix between fish a dead monkey (which are used quite often) and some Halloween decor namely the teeth ad the ribs don’t even fit properly they are unlined up if you look at all other ribs on animals they are parallel these are not how ever i will say they did a nice job to try to get some money some people are very stupid and for those they would fall for something like this. but over all this just doesn’t fit with the laws of nature in most cases though there have been some exceptions

  67. this is sooo fake. firstly wots with the tounge sticking out? and wots with the ears? has anyone actually noticed that there are no coller bones, nipples or scales on the tale? and if you look carefully, on its right shoulder it looks like it has been moulded with plaster. and i should no i do plaster and clay work all the time. and it’s right are is to curved to have bones. there is no elbow, has any1 noticed that? judging by the nose it looks like it has started to decay, but the reast of the body hasn’t and if it was decaying the skin would have a green tinge not a plaster white colour with added brown to the ears and mouth and there would be no eyes just holes.

  68. Hey! This picture comes out first in Google.Com for the search term “Malaysia”

    Yakss! Hopefully, It don’t spoil our tourism campaign….

    “Weird and disgusting-look mermaid found in Malaysia” – World News ;-)

  73. well i don’t think the shit is real…cause now there are rumours that say’s one was found on my island but its the same photo…bullshit!!!

  74. I know of a not yet published book which speaks about the ‘merpeople’ and this is a merguard.The merpeople used them to guard their island from actually fits…the description of the fingers ,the teeth,the overall colour,etc…i was surprised to note they exist…it’s still so surprising to me.

  75. Hey, Hey, Hey!
    That mermaid is really fake, and if you can’t tell then we’re sorry but you have a problem. OBTW (Oh By The Way) Hi Javier!

    Thanx everyone for reading! have fun with you imagination, and keep posted, because we will write more later!

  76. Mermaids are real.It’s totaly real!!!
    My teacher said that….. (THIS IS A TRUE STORY)
    Once, when a fisherman goes fishing, he saw a MERMAID!!! He can’t believe his eyes. Then, he throw his net where the MERMAID was…. and he really catch the MERMAID!!!

    Now, the MERMAID is in a musuem. But…. I don’t now what is the musuem!

    I hope I can see it.

  78. I am 11 and all i have to say is stop acting life some dang SCIENTIFIC NERDS looking the stuff up either you believe or not.not that hard of a choice people but i do agree that thang does look UGLY,FAKE AND NASTY

  79. This is ironic coming from me….However, pict subject “mermaid” : A categorical lie. Proof: Entire form is made of the same material.

    Case Closed

  80. hahaah this what if a guy have sex with shark with out condom… lol it is so fake … I have done so many studies and for a mermaid to be in this shape is totally impassable. However i think there are some creatures out in our world were not discovered yet becz i saw one in front of me ” here is the story “there was that tv show in my country which is teaching you how to relax your body by doing Self – Hypnosis in order to get a clean mind and stuff . Anyway i start doing it with a partner. but i couldn’t remember what were the steps very well so i tried to came up with something that is so familiar to it. in the middle of our experience we herd a manly spooky voice saying how nukes my door ” then you both look to each other and then we looked around us and there was nothing ” since then we thought my big brother whose room is next to ours might did that voice ” we ignored after that we started to finish our steps next we herd the voice again this time the light were exploded and then behind my back we saw a really scary looking guy or thing . it has face look like a big to and with one horn in his head and hairy body ewe oh my god also he has stink smell … any way he ask us why did you nukes my door what do you from I am trying to sleep … i was christen
    so i said by the name of Jazzes leave us alone holding the my nickels Jesus’s cross and then my friend who is Muslim start ed reading something from al-Quern suddenly the thing were burned. My friend says these thing called jenny in there believes and we should never contact with them becaz they will destroy the person’s life
    and that was an experience i will never forget …please don’t send me emails about that thing i am still having bad dreams of him ” and I don’t care if you believe me or not ”. thank you
    so i said by the name of jesse leave us alone and the my friend who is amoslem start reading something from alqran sudnlly the thing were burnd
    and that was an experins i will never forget …please don’t send any email about that thing i am still having bad dreams of him. thank you

  81. No affence but I cant belive most of you peapole actully belive in mermaids. I mean I think they are pretty in all like in (The little mermaid)is cute but come on!!!its a cartoon you dumbos and no affence again. wella if your parents told you that mermaids exist liyers… sorry to burst your bubble. but I belive in the bible and in the bible says their is no mesion of mermaids and if you go around looking at or looking up(real life mermaids)and it looks life like ok they either just do trick photography or they just put a fake tail on and then near the waist wheir the tail starts they put your skin color on it so it looks like the tail is connected to the waist and viola and again sorry to burst youy bubble.


  83. Hey,people! Look this! This is the one of all lost humans from Atlantis from the bottom of the ocean!
    Some day they will come to us…
    Yes! I know it :)

  84. This ugly thing you get when a lonely horny fisherman rapes a dolphin that got stuck in his net and after that lets the dolphin go. I know for sure that fishermen do these nasty tings because it happens in my country at sea, but if there would be an outcome I wasn’t sure of. After seeing this picture it may just be possible……..

  85. woy itu gambar apa’an??????lo semua ngasih penjelasaan pake b.inggris gw jadi bingung…………..SMAN 10 Tangerang/////// di Indonesia { Asia Tenggara}

  86. someone sent me this picture claiming that this was codfish and if i had not search for mermaids i would not have known that they were trying to mislead me. Thanks for posting this with the correct information

  87. hey i think its a real mermaid cuz it has a tail and its not scaley cuz its dry duuuh!!!!!!!!!! hey i think its a woman or man? it looks like a woman win fin fin hair

  88. Ewwwwww! Dat shyt look like a fxxx dried up alien LMAO but i think its true cuz who wastes thier fuckin time 2 do dat. I wouldnt SO ITS REAL HATERZZZZ!!!! LOL :)

  89. Hey I know that real or fake mermaid died because a ship banged him on his head so thats how it died so a ship orboat baneged him on his head and then he was so weak to go back to the sea that he found a shore and slowly died ;) fairies and mermaids are real i you have to beleive easy :)

  90. this is an artwork made by someone and placed it there and let unknown photographers take pictures and then stories came pouring down…that it was a real merman saw at “(put a country or city here)” now this has been a the trend…
    i saw a blog this same picture few years back and the entry was “a merman found in cebu”
    then i saw this page “mermaid in malaysia”

    if it were real the real beach was in mexico ^_^
    it’s a fake mermaid though at the beach in mexico…
    a human skeleton fitted wth real fish skin, fins and fangs..^_^

  91. To tell the truth i do believe it but still i would like to see it for myself
    Someone told me that saltfish is made from this , if so i will never eat
    it again .

  92. This mermaid is in fact a sculpture by Juan Cabana. As said at,

    “I created this 5 foot long mermaid using a human skeleton and covering the entire corpse with real fish skin. The fins and teeth are also authentic and derived from fish. Unknown persons took my photos and used them to create stories of finding this mermaid in various locations around the world. A newsreporter in Mexico sent me the actual newspaper reports (shown below) of my mermaid being discovered off the coast of Campeche.”

    I still think it’s wicked awesome, though!!! Very cool. You can see some of Cabana’s other work at

  93. that is so UGLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  94. I made my own research on this and found out how fake this whole story is!! I think mermaids exist but surely this one does not
    the artist (Juan Cabana) who made it did not want to publish the pictures of his creation. I found this:

    You can see by yourself on this website: + there are other pictures of this mermaid

  95. We are real! However, people or land creatures have the notion that we look like that. Just like how humans portray alien life forms with big head and big eyes, all wrong! Good try though.

  96. Oh my god, they found Jar jar binx XD
    This looks like some Harry Potter shit or something, and after my opinion, this looks pretty FAKE..
    But thats not a problem, unless someone claims to have actually found this creature, and are trying to squeese money out of people by telling this is real stuff, which it could be for all I know, but to keep myself on the safe side, I wouldn’t buy this.

  97. where his gender symbol gone its totaly fake or may be he is wearing a special kind of skin!!!
    to escape his sex .
    (too shy mermaid …..)

  98. You know, if dinosaurs existed, and mountain lions, and all other animals in fact, why can’t a mermaid exist? What is the definition of “made up” … SOMETHING TO PONDER, ALL YOU NON BELIEVERS!!!

  99. i dont know wat to believe is it real i heard that is the saltfish which we eat is that so cause we never see the head of the saltfish

  100. Dude i’ve seen ugly shits before but this beats them by far i wonder who found it?!! But one thing is for certain if this shit was found in J.A. we would be making some big money off all you other feaky experimental countries But seriously Dudes All you peoples are really F**Ked up see you freaks in the next life

  101. lol:D
    they said that its a real one and some one was found that and he take it to ebay lol now if some one want to bay him he can:)but i dont think so that some one gonna bay this ugly Mermaid …..
    and i toght that Mermaid in the story are beautiful but there are so ugly:DDD
    if kids going to se that they gonna have a headak XD

  102. I changed my mind… he?/she? definitely it (i like the word definitely) is real or in philippines totoo. i like the face of this beAutiful creature he/she captured my definitely heart

  103. i beleive that’s true………..have you’ve seen the mermaid in peter pan movies???????? it’s exactly the same with this one. CHILL OUT FELLAS……….haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!take the chill bill.

  104. SubhanaAllah!!Allahuakbar!!!Allah is almighty!Only Allah knows what He had created.

  105. ha, ha, ha, ha, ha….. Who said mermaid/man has no lungs or a nose? they don’t need scales neither. does an octopus have scales?? does frogs and aligaters have lungs?? but they do go into water. ya.. the picture looks fake but you can’t say mermaids/man don’t exist. let me tell you a short story of a legend on the island of Guam in the Pacific Ocean, about a girl who turned into a mermaid. ENJOY: A girl name “Sirena” loved to swim. she neglected her chores and sneaks down to the beach everyday. her mother was very angry at her for her laziness that she cursed her and wished she would turn into a fish. Sirenas godmother heard the curse that the mother made. she cannot undo the curse so she told the mother that Sirena is her daughter too and made a wish on Sirena. she wished Sirena will stay half girl. The next day the curse was made. Sirenas waist on down was a fish, waist on up was Sirena. Siena was happy and sad. She told her mother to watch over her sisters and brothers and that she loves them. And told her mother this will be the last time you’ll ever see me. So she waved and swam away into the deep blue ocean of the Pacific. And that was the last time they ever saw Sirena. this legend has passed down so many generations. and fishermen say that they’ve seen a mermaid figure when they’re out in the ocean fishing. some say they’ve caught her but manage to escape the nets. some say their nets are torn up and their caught has got away. but wether the legend was true or not, NOONE knows for sure about mermaids/man, what they look like or if they exist or not.

  106. hey guys, i do believe in mermaids…. but the one in the pics here is not the real one… the true mermaid, as my grandpa says is maybe 15inches to 20inches long… and mermaids really exists….. just really dont know where?

  107. it’s true there are mermaids, we just do see them the way we want to, but they are real.
    somehow, mermaids are waters figured as a woman.
    also, mermaids don’t actualy appear as we think they are beautiful, they may be ugly, but they are beautiful creatures in their own world.
    wether you believe it or not, it still depends on your understanding about the existence of these “mysterious” creatures, could be fairies, ghost, or mermaids and other “supernatural” whatever.

  108. Well…..does everybody here knows the spelling of MERMAID….I have seen all the posts and sum of them have spelled it MARMAID….etc etc….lol

  109. i thought mermaid were suppost to be pretty.. im 12 you just ruined the rest of my life…
    im jokking you i will forgot about this in a few seconds… HAHAHAH

  110. i dont believe in mermaids but i think that creature is something it might be a mermaid it could be an evolved fish or a new species research it lol

  111. I study stuff like this even tho I am only 9 I sooo know that this is fake you can even tell.I watched a show about how to make fake bones and this thing is fake you can’t fool me!

  112. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee………

    That looks so weird………look at his/her(I don’t know if this mermaid has a gender) teeth they are so weird………………

    shucks………that is really grossssss……

    I know this is just fake………not at all real……..

  113. This… hmm.. i dunno what type of mermaid is this but it is sure ugly… BUT IS IT TRUE???!!! There are such things as mermaid but its very difficult to find like that.. IMPOSSIBLE!!! maybe its fake

  114. It is a very ugly mermaid i say and and i don’t think that’s real anyway that is going to give me night mares that is one boney thing that could be made out of clay who knows so i don’t want to touch it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! scaRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!! i would not want to be that thing at all i don’t want to die im only 9!!!!!!

  115. That could be a realask me i am one i am telling the truth realy it is kinda like H2Owith me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  116. Ngeeeeee…………
    oh my god….how nonsense of these matter..????i cannot imagine how suck if i found it first……’s must something hidden beside this event…so takes its as our lesson kay…….

  117. To have a prosthetic like that made costs thousands of dollars. Show me a Malaysian fisherman with that much extra cash lying around.

  118. ok .. this is creepy .. yes .. im having thoughts of it … but .. there are many different cultures out there… some choose to believe and some not to… if this is proven to be a fake.. it doesnt mean that it doesnt really exist for other people… myths are myths and yet supernatural stuffs happen all the time rite ? and if haitiens believe in these, then it is to our respect that we should just listen, believe or not. there is plainly nothing to argue about … the story about mermaid .. it varies, as in the little mermaid and also in different versions, where when a mermaid encounters someone who is trespassing, she will lure him into her lair and kills him in a seductive way… in another case, mermaids that are “beautiful” as in the little mermaid, thats a totally different story. but they are just stories… to believe or not… one may nid to think twice… but it is not a necessity to believe nor to not believe … so for people who are born in haiti, there is no nid for u to prove that this is real… let people choose to see to it that it is real or fake in their eyes… and on cssandra’s perspective, i think that is the best… u dun see what u think is existing… something is definitely out there…. this may just be a fake.. but u noe that something of this sort is out there somewhere, but not known to us. this is one of the better perspectives. Many things are left to be revealed…but sometimes “curiousity kills” …

    “i am however, afraid of this diagram … it is unpleasant to my sights and gives me horror especially the eyes and the tongue sticking out.”


  120. I don’t thing so. This is real photo. This is published in polish magazine “Nieznany Å›wiat” (ang. Don’t Known World”). Fish is cath in Russia. Yas

  121. I don’t think for a minutet that this is real, but i do think mermaids are real. I mean, there is so much ocean that has never been seen, plus they’re discovering new spiecies of fish everyday, so why can’t there be mermaids or something like it out there that hasn’t been found? I also think there’s something in space, something like aliens (but not little green men) i mean we can’t be the only ones in the entire universe, I feel like that’s just ignorant.

  122. This is so not true .i mean that thing is just can also be a hoax it is just eeeeeeeeeeeeew.what ever according to my research mermaids have long hairand anormal face.mermans are never bold their hair grows rntil the shouldersand it is o dont think this is a mermaid it looks so evil ewwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  123. Don’t say it’s fake! The truth of mermaid is really ugly and not beautiful at all. Some people think that mermaid is beautiful and such, NO! That is only a cartoon and mermaid costume.

    Wow, mermaid was found in Malaysia? This is my first time I’ve seen the most ugliest mermaid. This picture is 100% true and not fake at all. It’s face looks like an alien type. ALIEN + mermaid 0_o ??? Well I guess Allah can create anything even strange creatures.

    You can also visit to and watch the proof of mermaids video.

    Don’t listen to people who say mermaid doesn’t exist, they’re just an idiot who doesn’t know about it, faggot >:(

  124. A mermaid? I don’t think so. Mermaids are half woman, half fish. It’s fake for sure -.-

    I believe in mermaids, I’m even writing a story about one (I’m not yet a published author, but I hope to be) right now, but that’s just not real.

  125. hey whats that……………are you sure that is mermaid………..or just kidding…….i think they just kidding duhhhhhh…….its very imposible…………

  126. Oh God, please help these stupid people. It is not a mermaid. It is a photograph of a sculpture. You post a photo like this, and so many Malaysian comment… USE YOUR BRAIN, PEOPLE!!!!

  127. it’s soooooooooo real like i believe they are real (Y) :)

    if not y would some on do that

    come on it has 2 be true

  128. OMG I was drunk when they took the shot! ;o

    LMAO ppl for real, it’s like if mermaids unicorns and all that kind of crap were real, don’t you think that someone will have a REAL proof, like the fossil or something like that.


  130. How do these animals reproduce? I can’t see any genital organs.
    How do they give birth? How do they feed their babies? – There’s no hint on the picture about that.
    Why is there only one picture?

    So, my decision is: FAKE!


  132. mermaid shermaid~
    i dont think its real… i think some one made it up as a project and took this photo… :S
    that is my comment and opinion on this mermaid matter.

  133. Why do we have to believe this? isn’t it better we think mermaids are much more beautiful?? that will attract us to the ocean!

  134. mermaid does not exist so stop talking bold shit because this is not a mermaid some haitian people is trying to make people believe that mermaid is exist

  135. if that freakin looking thing is MERMAID then i am SUPERMAN…..believe me its true…. THE thing is this that this guy who posted this ugly thing happens to be a crackpot….mentally ill n thats the reason y he made some of u fool as u believed in this ugliness of art….

    and if u askd me wat the hell it can be???? i will tell you wat it is in reality….
    actually the guy who posted this came to meet me in my house late at nite and as i was sitting in my corrider pool he askd me wat was my opinion toward his ugliness and as usual i replied him in action… i dipped him in our swimming pool with his neck tied to a huge rock (for 315 days approx) and i brought him out and dried him in the sun (for 350 days approx) then the next day he was all over in the news (mermaid found in malaysia?,haiti?, indonesia?)

    and also u make sure that u may see another memaid found in the backyard drain…..

  136. this is FAKE! you can so tell on the close-up’s of the tail/finn thing. the scales would not have still been on the mermaid had it been real!! and it would not look like that! its fake.. very fake

  137. hello its really shocking news or me coz i dint see such kind of think will i want to know more about this and really still i have a question saying they exist ? or not

  138. DUDES!! Its a sculpture!! For those non sculptors… Which is probaly most of you… Look on the torso, the texture, its plaster of paris strips!! And for those gullible people, when flesh is mummified or rots its a dark brown or black. NOT WHITE!! jees xD

  139. There is no way this could be real. There would be huge scientist researching into it. It would be in some museum or laboratory. It would be all over the media and there would be documentaries and such made about it.
    Think about it.
    I’m not saying there aren’t mermaids in Malaysia because I know about the stories, but this is not a mermaid.

  140. OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    FRIKIN LYF……BUT WOW!!!!!!!!!
    I LOVE MERMAIDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I WANT TO STUDY THIS!!!!!!!!!
    HAVE THERE OWN LYF FORM!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    PEACE OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  141. i dunno if my last message posted so here goes.

    IT is a fake. a taxidermist did it out of animal skin and bone and its not the only fake one he’s done. he does it as an art form. this picture has been out for at least a year and ive seen alot of his work on his official website. Im sorry to burst your bubble, not to say that merpeople don’t exist or anything, just dont think its going to be that easy to find one. if they are real, they know how to keep it a secret and after this long i dont think luck is really a factor. be realistic and dont be pulled into these sorts of things just because you WANT to believe.
    keep an open mind but dont be gulible.
