In an article by Daniel Cameron for The Epoch Times, we once again ponder the question, Are mermaids real? The article is said to contain ten credible mermaid sightings, a few of which also include videos.
The first story is from Israel, and one we have looked at before. This video appears to be cleaner than the one we saw previously. Might it be a girl that made herself a tail? Would one of us move like that?
The second story features marine geologist, Dr. Torsten Schmidt. His story ended up on the Animal Planet special, Mermaids: The New Evidence. This tends to make the story less credible in my book.
Meet Beamer, a Blue Shark, and Rizzilient, a Mako Shark. They are just two of the 47 sharks you can track at the Ocearch Global Shark Tracker web site. When you click on one of the shark pings on the map, you are presented with a photo of the shark as well as when and where they were tagged.
A shark that was tagged near Cape Cod is now hanging around the east coast of Florida.
View the current positions of the sharks, or tracking activity over time. Can you find Cyndi?
The web site also contains an answer to the question, "Why help sharks?" Be sure to take a look!
You can help Ocearch track more sharks by making a donation.
Facts and Legends
Mermaids & Mermen: Facts & Legends, the title says it all. This is an article by Benjamin Radford for LiveScience.
"Mermaids have long fascinated us. Humans have always wondered what it would be like to fly high above the clouds or dive deep into the briny seas."
We all enjoy reading the legends of mermaids and mermen. You've come to the right place.
