Who would have known that these last couple of months everyone would be talking about mermaids and mermaid skeletons?
We first covered mermaids when the Animal Planet released their special, “Mermaids The Body Found.” We covered the story here at our article title, “Animal Planet Mermaids Show Bodies Found That Create Nightmares [pictures & videos].”
The Animal Planet wasn’t the last of the mermaid bodies being found as a new one has surfaced. A man calling himself Professor Dimitrov has released pictures of a skeleton of a woman that is quite apparently a mermaid. The skeleton is very tall and has a fish tail like appearance starting at the hips and goes all the way down into a bony fin.
Some of the websites we found out about this from had to be translated from Bulgarian so it’s not perfect English. This excerpt is from Society.actualno.com and reads, “Ancient skeleton of a mermaid before the Flood 8 millenniums ago was found near Sozopol Beach by Professor Dimitrov. This “news” blew prostarnstvoto Internet. Zevzecite comment that vampires after Dimitrov’s time to start dealing with mermaids , writes Novinar.”
So where did the picture of this female fish or Bulgarian mermaid start? It is said that a journalist shared the photo on his Facebook wall and it went viral after that. The journalist’s name is Petar Genchev. While the story sounds good, we tried to back up the claims and find the specific journalist and his Facebook wall. To no avail we haven’t found the specific post. What we did find was some other information that you’ll see below.
Looking a little deeper, we found out about a website called Worth 1000. It seems this photo might have been from a Photoshop contest and further altered and then spread with a story. What do you think? Is this the real thing or is this another file for Snopes? It just may be that the Animal Planet has spurred a fascination of fooling the public into believing there really are mermaids.
