This is a short report on all the REAL evidence we have on the creatures known as Mermaids.

If I missed anything or if you want to request a specific creature to have a report written on just send me a message or email. If you have any more evidence to add send it to Metalheadguydude@gmail.com.

Entertaining a theroy: Mermaids.

Chapter one
The theroy.

With the current way we look at things it would be almost impossible to prove the existance of the Mermaid.  And with the lack of evidence it only makes this task harder.
Anyways here's the theroy:  A mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature with the upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish.  Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide, including the Near East, Europe, Africa and Asia. The first stories appeared in ancient Assyria, in which the goddess Atargatis transformed herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover. Mermaids are sometimes associated with perilous events such as floods, storms, shipwrecks and drownings. In other folk traditions (or sometimes within the same tradition), they can be benevolent or beneficent, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans.
Mermaids are associated with the mythological Greek sirens as well as with sirenia, a biological order comprising dugongs and manatees. Some of the historical sightings by sailors may have been misunderstood encounters with these aquatic mammals. Chritopher Columbus reported seeing mermaids while exploring the Caribbean, and sightings have been reported in the 20th and 21st centuries in Canada, Israel and Zimbabwe. The U.S. Nationail Ocean Service stated in 2012 that no evidence of mermaids has ever been found.
Mermaids have been a popular subject of art and literature in recent centuries, such as in Hans Christen Anderson's well-known fairy tale "The little mermaid" (1836). They have subsequently been depicted in operas, paintings, books, films and comics.

So with that aside now we can talk about the 'fun' stuff.
First let's get the most controversial piece of evidence out of the way: The Bloop.
The Bloop is by far the most controversial bit of evidence in my research yet, being claimed by Cthulhu cultists and NOAA alike.  The simple Bloop is a recording from a hydrophone located 50° S, 100° W.  Now the cultists claim that this is a call from their god Cthulu and NOAA claims it's an icequake whereas others are claiming a group yes a group of mermaids talking amongst another.  Hoever none of these explenations have been proven true unless you belive NOAA.

The second bit of evidence is an actual video that didn't have a name but the persons that captured it were investigated by the military and had to relenquish any ownership of the video and changed statements regarding what they saw.
Currently I am unable to find the original video most of the ones that you'll find are recreations for the animal planet documentary.  Now even from watching the recreations its painfully obvious that they're faked, so don't beleive the documentary Mermaids: The body found.  Instead look at the new evidence where we see another video that was captured 3000 feet below the surface off the coast of Greenland.  These video encounters have been slandered by the documentary and the media. 

Now I think that if people fo find anything like this they should stay FAR FAR FAR away from the media and other public sources instead keep them hidden from the people that are going to use it and you to make a bigger name for themselves.  And as for other evidence, it's much to scarce for me to make a well put together article.  Anyways if any further evidence appears I'll be sure to update this.

Part three
The photos
 So at some point in your life you've probably seen this photograph.  I don't think I need to tell you it's a fake.  The torso is that of a monkey sewn onto the tail of a fish.


This is one of the most elaborate hoaxes I've seen to date.  Whoever made this giant 'doll' hade an eye for detail. From the scales all over the torso and tail to the eyes looking shriveled from the sun.  But the lack of decay on the body and lack of scavengers eating it is an obvious tip that it's a fake.  But it dose look quite amazing.

Well this is all I have to report, so this is Rhys singing off.
