  2. the second thing is just a doll made for a bunch of students in mexico, they were in the news and explain why they did it, but many people in the town who found it were really scary

  3. Of course its not real,if it was there would be decay,and the eyes would be filled with salt and dirt and would have been eaten away by seafish.

  4. hey….is that thing real??…i guess it isn’t….the second image is obviously not real…but for the first image??….i don’t think so…but….it’s nice…hehehe… here from philippines…

  8. Well The first one does not look like a mermiad…it look more like a deep sea fish that you never see because we cant get deep enough to find all the creatures down there, and well the second picture looks like it is made out of styrofoam…and its gums are much too pink for it to be dead…also its eyes look fake..but im not sure about those…really I dont think that is real at all…and I now styrofoam floats but people have ways of filling styrofoam.
