Animal Planet Shows Real Mermaids [pictures & videos]

Z6Mag

Posted by on May 28th, 2012

This Memorial Day Weekend Animal Planet revealed one of their installments of their first ever Monster Week which airs from May 21st, 2012 to May 28th, 2012. Mermaids: The Body Found started on Sunday May 27th from 9pm to 11pm ET/PT. The show airs again on Monday 28th, 2012 at 7pm – 8pm – 9pm EST/CST/PST.

Full Videos & Pictures of Mermaids Below

The Animal Planet mermaids are presented with a good dose of truth when two scientists are revealed in the show that claim they acquired physical remains of a mermaid that still hasn’t been explained. The scientific theories that are approached are how humans & primates could have similarities to mermaids in the ocean postulating that humans or primates themselves evolved out of the ocean. The theory in the Mermaid Body Found Documentary is called the aquatic ape theory.

Some potential items of interest from this theory are things that humans share with mermaids:

  • Webbing between fingers (other primates don’t have this)
  • Subcutaneous fat (insulating from cold water)
  • Control over breath (humans can hold breath up to 20 minutes, longer than any other terrestrial animal)
  • Loss of body hair (hair creates drag in water)
  • Instinctive ability to swim (human babies are able to do this)
  • A highly developed brain, which depends on nutrients provided by seafood

The Animal Planet Monster Week series dives into more facts and legend on why Mermaids could exist. Some tie ins relate back into old US Navy research studies doing sonar tests and potential mermaid call in the sea that was discovered by NOAA called, “The Bloop.” On the show you see interviews with people that claim they’ve found mermaids on the beach and have photos to prove it.

The show will be replayed on Monday 28th, 2012 from 7pm to 9pm ET/PT to close off the Monster Week extravaganza.

Animal Planet Mermaids: The Body Found – Fishermen Catch Man In Nets

Fishermen in rough waters document a strange catch in the nets… something that looks like a man but doesn’t seem human. Tune in for the world premiere of Mermaids: The Body Found, Sunday May 27, at 9PM E/P.

Mermaids Documentary: Strange Body Found On The Beach Video

Strange footage shot by a young boy shows him and his friend examining the body of something that has washed up on shore. It comes alive and both boys flee… but what was it? Tune in for the world premiere of Mermaids: The Body Found, Sunday May …

Stolen Footage of Mermaids In Tank At US Naval Facility

Stolen footage of a science lab shows a large tank with something alive inside… and it is not a fish. Tune in for the world premiere of Mermaids: The Body Found, Sunday, May 27, at 9PM E/P.

Amazing enough in the video above of the Mermaids in a large fish tank at a US Naval facility has the video end with a URL: www.believeinmermaids.com. Going to that website reveals the website has been seized by the DOJ and Homeland Security Investigations unit. The site looks like this:

Mermaids Website Seized by DOJ & Homeland Security

However, with further investigation and by looking at the Source Code of the website in question we can see this is more of a publicity stunt done by Discovery Channel and Animal Planet. The website’s tagging and descriptions on the source code reveal that is more for entertainment than an actual Department of Homeland Security or DOJ confiscation of a website. Things like the title, “Mermaids are Real � Real Evidence from Dr. Paul Robertson, NOAA researcher” and the title of the main DOJ Image, “Mermaid Legends-Mermaid Sightings-water creature” and the alt text of the image, “Mermaid legend is true, and there is proof of real live mermaids” make you believe that this site was keyworded to go along with the Mermaid’s Body Found series on Animal Planet.

You can view an image of what the source code of the Believe in Mermaids website is below:

Believe in Mermaids Website Source Code

Just to clear up any mermaid conspiracy theories that the Homeland Department of Security, the DOJ and the US Navy are covering up real mermaids by shutting down a website that reveals the truth, we did some further digging. If the Source Code example above didn’t clear any doubt with you that the website is created by Discovery Channel and Animal Planet the Domain Registry or WHOIS registration of the website BelieveInMermaids.com will clear that up. Below is an image of the information in the WHOIS of Believe in Mermaids dot com.

You can clearly see the domain was registered on October 12th, 2011 through Melbourne IT, LTD. The organisation owner name and address is:

Discovery Communications, LLC
One Discovery Place
Silver Spring, Maryland 20910
(240)662-7562

The DNS Servers read StableTransit.com which shows the website is ran on Rackspace

Here is a Screenshot of the actual WHOIS for BelieveInMermaids.com:

Believe In Mermaids WHOIS

Now if we’re being up front here, if Discovery Communications was really trying to pull a fast one on you they could have made the site more real. It’s obviously all in fun to get you excited about their Mermaid Series and spread chatter about Mermaid conspiracies. Discovery could have easily registered the domain as a private registration and made the source code look more realistic with actual DOJ & Homeland Security information there.

So enough about the Animal Planet Mermaid Documentary, there is a ton of crazy information on mermaids hiding all over the Internet. We’re going to share with you some of the craziest mermaid pictures you’ve ever seen. Attached to some of these pictures are tales of conspiracy and mystery that have spread around the world all over about mermaids lurking below our seas. Most people run into these mermaid creatures when they wash up on the beach.

Below we are are sharing with you other popular mermaid pictures and videos that have been shared and made famous through bizarre stories. After each photo we’ll provide links to more of the photos for you to dive into more mermaid research to discover whether you believe mermaids are real or not. Behold – mermaid pics galore:

The Teluk Bahang, Penang Malaysia Mermaid Found On Beach

On the northewest part of Penang Island in Malaysia is a fishing village that is called Teluk Bahang. There is a popular dam in the area called Teluk Bahang Dam and close next door is a popular luxury resort called Mutiara Beach Resort. It was in the Teluk Bahang fishing village that on the coast in the beach brush a mermaid was photographed and numerous pictures were taken.

Teluk Bahang Mermaid On Back

A website built on Google’s site builder released many of the pictures in series. This story goes back to August of 2006 when the photos started getting circulated to news outlets. A Chinese Newspaper ended up getting the Department of Fisheries contacted and they asked for the photos for further investigation. It email that went to the Chinese Newspaper was titled in the subject line, “Teluk Bahang Fisherman Found This! Newspaper Not Allowed To Publish?”

Sad enough, this mermaid fantasy seems to have been debunked by an eBay listing. At 40ana.blogspot.com they reveal that, “After searching through the internet, I found out that the pictures were actually from eBay. The seller in eBay claims that the creature was found in Fort Desoto Beach in Florida. The seller’s id is seamystery. The bid was closed on July 06. The circulation of the pictures in Malaysia only started in August. So this explains that the creature was never found in Teluk Bahang. However, the question still lies as in whether the creature is real or fake. The winning bidder is mysterymuseum. His feedback on eBay was “REAL GOLDEN Mermaid – A Million Dollar Attraction – MYSTERYMUSEUM.COM-A++++”” Thanks for busting that one Ana. Ebay has now pulled the auction since it was older than 90 days but if you keep looking you can find a lot of references to it. If you put the URL from the eBay auction into Google you’ll find all kinds of stories about this mystery mermaid, try this search.

Archaeological Buried Mermaid Found In Dig Site?

At a website called PhotosFan.com they reveal a picture that shows a mermaid buried underground. It looks like an archaeological dig site and the picture is categorized under Archaeological Finds. There isn’t much information but the pictures are sourced from Damn Funny Pictures. We are still searching for more pictures & information on this buried mermaid, if you find any details on the story, let us know!

Buried Mermaid Body Found

Chennai Mermaid / Tsunami Mermaid / Marina Wash Up Mermaid

This mermaid has been used and abused since 2003 in stories, email chains and many different hoaxes. It remains to be proven whether this mermaid was real or not but About.com does a pretty good write-up on the source of the different stories of this mermaid.

The Chennai Mermaid Email Message Explaining the Photos:

A dead mermaid was washed onto a Chennai beach after the Dec 26 tsunami. True or false?

THE plight of desperate sailors must have been a terrible one. Legend has it that in the 17th and 18th centuries, seamen on long and treacherous voyages became so sex-starved that they started seeing beautiful half-human, half-fish creatures that beckoned amid the sea spray.

These mermaids or mermen – depending on their gender – were also documented by 17th century naturalists like Dutchman Georg Eberhard Rumphius in books like The Curiosity Cabinet Of Amboina.

Among his factual drawings of the flora and fauna of Indonesia – Rumphius’ pet region – was a comely mermaid who was said to have lived a few days in a tub of seawater, mewing like a kitten.

So, when a widely circulating e-mail titled ‘Mermaid Found in Marina Beach, Chennai’ arrived in LifeStyle’s inbox last week, we expected to see attached photos of a gorgeous, topless nymph – much like actress Daryl Hannah in the 1984 movie Splash – languishing on a sandy beach.

Instead, they showed a frightening, dessicated sea creature with a monkey-like head and fish-like body. Equally disturbing were its protruding ribs, scales, claws and very dry white hair.

‘Believe it or not,’ read the undated and unsigned text. ‘Below are pictures of a mermaid found at Marina Beach in Chennai, India, last Saturday. The body is preserved in the Egmore Museum under tight security.’

Video of Mermaid Body Found On The Beach Dried Out

YouTube has it’s own crazy conspiracy videos. One of this was uploaded on September 5th, 2012 by a user named: bhatsumanth. The video is titled, “the most disturbing and shocking video THE REAL MERMAID BODY FOUND!!!! PARANORMAL” This video features a walk on the beach with a mermaid laying over some branches and debris on the beach laying in an upward position with flowing red hair. The red hair seems to throw this mermaid off as a true fake. However the body is pretty interesting looking and there is a tail fin that is dried up and pointing in the air. The video has garnered nearly 42,000 views on YouTube.

    if the website had been seized, the picture url wouldn’t be:

    http://believeinmermaids.com/media/img/mermaids_web.jpg

    it would be hosted elsewhere most likely, and definitely NOT in a media folder in believemermaids.com

    you guys are idiots

  • Bennett okonkwo

    Wow tell me more who is fooling who here this pictures didn’t really explain much pls highlight this thins more pls

  • Mike Peine

    Is killing of Whales okay with you ? What actions canbe taken ? The Government is Corrupt. Example We have NOT needed fuel since the 1820′s SURF Compressed Air Locomotives they ran from 1829 to 1948 until The Rockerfeller OIL Cartel EXPUNGED them. Water/Windmills etc… power Air Compressors & store energy until needed. SURF A car that runs on air by MDI. & Theirs better ways to make FREE ENERGY see my site = perpetualmotion100 i have 9 FREE ENERGY DEVICES & ALL the information needed to build them is FREE.

  • Brendan

    The Malaysian mermaid is a fake I can prove it to you….. In Ripleys believe it or not they have the same mermaid a guy in the us makes these mermaids when I first saw it in the book I thought it was real too for the claws he uses alligator claws he uses multiple fish skins as well and also you cann see the seam of where he cured the skin sorry to burst your bubble kid but I’m watching the documentary right now and that mermaid was fake.

  • skyfinn

    it’s fake

  • sick

    really disappointing…… but would figure, media seems to be more for entertainment these days. Not much truth out there anymore.

  • Zain

    Ok let me just state this. I am not crazy…Because I totally believe it is possible for a “Mermaid” to exist in Earth’s waters. We are still discovering new animals on LAND Everyday, every year. Now that’s only 30% of the Earth. The other 70% is ALOT more difficult to explore. And we are STILL finding New animals as large as WHales!
    A Mermaid would be around Human size…and it’s the smartest thing in the ocean. To stay hidden from Humans would be childs play for these creatures.
    I’m just saying, it’s totally possible.
    Be Open minded people. We may not be the Only Species with a Advanced Langauge or be able to make tools.

    Heres the problem for them, “its very, very illegal to use a Govt sign or notice as such, its a indictable offence. But the sign is still on that page, so why is it when the Govt have a duty to remove the sign and charge the owners ?, this is what people should be focusing on, the points of law. (Its a official document because its still up there)

  • Journalist

    I’ve heard that the government seized the website because of the sonar testing that supposedly kills a lot of marine life whenever it is used.
