Real or Fake - Mermaid Found Inside Shark

I have a little time this morning and thought I'd continue the Real or Fake series. Today I want to look at the claim of a mermaid body being found inside a shark.

The above photo was and is passes around on social media sites like facebook and twitter.
According to the post you can see "Rare uncut video of a mermaid body" you just have to click the picture. This is where the fun starts ...Not.  Once you click the photo (normally with a play button) a message will pop up telling you that you need to share the video before viewing it. This is a tactic to insure the "Breaking News" spreads like a wild fire.
Then if that is not bad enough you are then taken to a site where you can win prizes for filling our surveys. It seems there is a lot of hoops to jump through to get to see this amazing rare footage of a mermaid that was eaten by a shark. Often times at the bottom of this survey page is a Mermaid video but it is not the promised "mermaid inside of a shark" video.  Here is the one most often shown.

The Mermaid in the video is fake, notice there are no flies or crabs eating it and it appears to have died in an unnatural pose.

But what of the claim of the Mermaid inside a shark? well, I'm glad you ask.

The photo used (top of page) is real and there are other photo as well ...here is one of them.

Yeah, I know ..gross
The photo of the remains is in fact a real photo and is not photoshopped or anything ....but the photo is from 2010. It is actual human remains found inside of a shark and not of a Mermaid.

SO, if you see the very top photo of this post on facebook or some social network, DO NOT click it. It is a survey scam.
