"GOLDEN Mermaid Found DEAD on Lonely Florida Beach Mermaid or Sea Monster?
Item number: 300006962914
While exploring desolate areas of Fort Desoto Beach at the southern end of St. Petersburg, here in Florida, I came upon a rather startling discovery. Before me lay what at first appeared to be a very large strange fish. Shocked and amazed, I realized I had found another mermaid or sea monster.
I went back to my car to get my camera. My hands were shaking as I tried to calm down to take these photos. This Mermaid or Sea monster, you be the judge, is a few inches shy of being 5 feet long. Laying on a fresh natural bed of seaweed, this create of the sea looks out as if still alive. What killed this mystery from the depths?"
Here are photos of the Mermaid creature:

Important Highlights of the Q & A Portion:Please notice some of the interesting comments and questions left by other ebay members regarding this creature.
Q I also live in FLA and have enjoyed reading all the questions especially from
those who have no idea what a beautiful state we live in. Not ALL of our beaches
are full of tourists and are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. .
rated top by all the experts for their pristine and natural state. I was just
wondering if you would be willing to have an interview with George Noury of AM
Coast to Coast show? If so, I will try and arrange it for you as to me, it
deserves the attention and some serious talk about your find. Good luck with
your auction and it certainly has my interest.
A There are miles of beaches
here most tourists would be afraid of. Thanks for writing!
Q WOW this is great i found a much smaller version of this creature when i was 16 now im 36 at that time i was afraid to mention this to my friends let alone my parents. it was about 3 ft. this was at daytona beach shores near the jetty's. i put this dead thing back in ther water also i had bad night mares for months. i really do
not know what you have there however i have seen the same. i currently reside in
casselberry florida & have stayed clear of the ocean since. just thought you
would like to know.
A Thanks for sharing. So I'm not the only one finding
NO HOLE HAS BEEN DRILLED IN THE BACK OF ITS HEAD. I was going to but my friends all yelled Don't drill a hole in its head! I also believe in Mermaids & Sea Monsters. On December 22, 1938 fishermen 18 miles off the southeastern coast of Africa hauled in a mean-looking five foot fish with thick, stumpy fins that were almost leg-like. The fish took almost three hours to die, snapping at anyone who came near it. This ugly fish turned out to be a Coelacanth, a prehistoric fish thought to have been extinct for the last 70 million years!
Q How many of these sea creatures have you found and do they look similar? Thanks
A I have found a few throughout the years. They all look differant. This one is the mama of all sea monsters.
Q I was out on a boat fishing a couple years ago and caught the same type of creature. We started talking about life in the sea and I realized I had no business
keeping this creature at all, so I let it go and was never heard of again until
A Amazing! this mermaid has family...it makes sense, she must have had
parents and maybe even children of the sea?
Q Dear Seller: This is not a dead mermaid but an alien from another world. Note the fingers, there are more then 4 fingers 1 thumb. If I were you, I would get a metal detector and hunt the area for strange metals, and computer parts, they may be in the water. Have someone scuba dive, and I'm sure you will find something. Then notify Army corp about the incident. Florida is a hot spot for UFO's by the way. If you need need futher information I will get it for you.
A I also noticed the Alien like features, especially the face. There was a book written a few years back about an African tribe that interacted with Alien visitors who happened to be half fish, half humanoid.
I’m not sure what to make of this. The photos look really good. You can see the scales on the creature and those teeth look pretty sharp. I can’t say that I’ve ever heard of mermaids around the parts of FL where I live. The only thing I can say is that it really looks amazing.
What do you think?
