Legendary River Mermaid Spotted!

Dr. Fong Says:
The is reminiscent of the large hypnotic red eyes of the Mothman who terrorized Point Pleasant, WV back in the 60's.


People on the banks of the Buffelsjags River at Suurbraak, a village close to Swellendam in the Western Cape, have reported spotting a legendary mermaid-like creature, known locally as the Kaaiman.

At a nearby low water bridge, a man said he saw a figure, “like that of a white woman with long hair thrashing about in the water”.

Thinking to save her, he waded toward her, but said he stopped in his tracks when he noticed a reddish shine in her eyes. The sight sent “shivers” down his spine, yet he was pulled forward as if hypnotised.

He said the figure made “the strangest sound”, like a woman crying. His mother, Dina, said the figure sounded so sorrowful “my heart could take it no more”.

The Kaaiman is described as a half human, half fish creature which lives in deep pools. It is white and has long hair and red eyes.

this entire site is so full of hullabaloo and nonsensical wishful thinking of the actual existence of fanciful myths and legends...a mere way to live out childhood dreams and longings that were never fufilled.

Mermaids are real, they are not monsters though; as Dr. fong is suggesting with red evil eyes! They are creatures of freedom and beauty! They symbolize our freedom of love and choice. Mermaids are to be loved and respected, not feared!!!!!!!

Maybe he is just giving an example of how it looks like. The world is full of mysteries, so .... I beilive in them.

by the way, what all the rude language here?

You guys, with all this talk of mermaids throughout the ages, there's got to be some truth to the rumors. Besides, most people who encounter strange things like this rarely do so when they have a camera on them.

well you know what they say about Mermaids...Not enough woman to love and not enough fish to eat

we all no that this picture is from peter pan. But mermaids are real, i am 14 years old and i still beleive. they have to be real, if they weren't where would the idea of a mermaid come from? Its not like one day someone was boared and so they sat down and made up a story bout mermaids. If you dont beleive in mermaids you might as well say that the bible and god isnt real,you might as say that some one got boared and so they wrote out a story and called it the 'bible'. The guy said that the mermaid had red eyes, does this mermaid have red eyes? no so he probally took this picture because it was the closest thing to what he saw.

oh lord, mermaids are derived from early sightings of manatees and dugongs back when everyone didnt know everything about everything.

they are not creatures of freedom and beauty...well maybe the beauty bit because thats how in legends they lured fishermen to their death, along with songs. also can be known as sirens. they were evil, and vain

as for saying mermaids arent real is like saying the bible isnt real?
you got it girl...

the bible is a series of stories based on events thousands of years ago. back when people had different cultures and veiws and beliefs. and more importantly different mind sets. things that probably seem mundane and normal nowerdays, if they happened thousands of years ago it would look to be like a miracle

most mystical things can be related back to real live creatures.

get some knowlege ive known this since about the age of 10.

it kinda looks like harry potter's mermaid.....

Ok...now having read what people have commented... I'll say what my opinion is. And that is: I believe in mermaids. Yeah. So ridiculous, huh? I must be one wacko - but you must believe that this planet is full of mystery as I don't think we're the only species on this planet and the sea is the most unexplored place - both space and the sea.
I don't like being too narrow minded to say that there's no such thing as sea monsters, mermaids etc. etc.. Also I hardly think that the Danish wouldn't make that mermaid sculpture for nothing!

Now, I don't really think they want to appear for us humans to see (you can imagine what human would do if we finally discover them! Perhaps killing them of course!).

And yes, that photo is fake (we all know that!).

Anonymous said...

seriously!!
I started off not believing but you all have really good arguements but now im just confused...and since were on the subject of non-sense maybe you guys should just write a letter to god and ask him if there are mermaids :D
LOSERS!! seriously get a life

Anonymous said...

Okay see i totally think that maybe in some universe there is life we don't now. THey say that there are suppose this that there are other galaxies. So there are probably other planets, suns, etc. But can't you imagine that there is possibly something out there like an earth and it holds life! Well if you can believe that you can probably believe that no there are no mermaid kingdoms, no hto, but there could be some thing out there that lead people to beilieve that the mermaids are real.

This silly post has spawned some of the most asinine comments I have ever heard.

dont always dismiss this stuff as nonsense. if it makes you look or think twice, it just might be true. i know from experience

Anonymous said...

oh wow this so funny. just because people dont see something they throw it out the window as fake. i agree with the asinine comment and the one about where they come from. yes the "legends" were started because of reterded sea captains but noone has ever been able to come up with how they heard these mantatees and dugongs "singing" because they use echo locations like dolphins and humans cant hear that. so yes i believe in mermaids and fairies and dragons and all the mythic creatures because in order for a legend someone had to see it. and with humans if we do discover the truth about mythic creatures or find mermaids and sea monters scowering the ocean what would we do? we would fear them BECAUSE of legend. and what we dont understand we fear. what we fear we destory. so maybe their just hiding really good. and check youtube out they hav scientific proof of mermaids and pink dolphins and water dragons in japan, hills in irland that were fairie burial grounds and proof the goverment is covering up the existance of dragons. so yeah there you go.
p.s. yes that pic is fake she looks just like jessica b something

I for one don't think that that picture is real. It's a professional job, but it looks like a photoshop to me, I can tell by some of the pixels and by having seen quite a few "shops" in my time.

I have the same family name as Dr. Fong
I'm also interested in cryptids ans supernatural beings.
It's really hard to prove their existence.
But I do believe there exist some of those mythological creatures

Teodora said...

I now a mermaid and i see her but its for real and i do not lie.

Anonymous said...

people all have their own opinions about what is real and not..but what i believe is that every story, myth or legend has to be a bit real otherwise where would people come up with this shit...soo mybe this dude saw a women with red hair being eatin by a huge fish an mistaking it for her tail..watever the case, some of it must b real. but thats my opinion. by the way,where did they say this happend? they say swellendam in the western cape and thats in south africa (where i live.) soo it is kinda cool that this happend here coz i never knew we had legends about mermaids

Anonymous said...

To all you people complaining about th picture: We already know it is from Peter Pan. It is merely an example of what was described in the passage. If you had half a brain you would have figured it out on your own.

Lol Wow. What an interesting site..

We must keep in mind that in despite of all that we (as a species) have accomplished, we are in a constant process of learning new things about the world around us.

honestly people, i do not know if mermaids do exist for real or not, but i strongly wish they do in a way. i have quite an imagination at times, and i believe it would be incredibly fanciful and extraordinary to see a real mermaid. as i very much hope they have true beauty, whether it is on the inside or out, hopefully both. i dream of these things, for i truly sometimes think of another life in which these myths and legends were true, just to experience the magnificent wonders of these wonderous creatures. that is all i shall say, good day to all, and to whomever reads this, many things r real and always have been, we just have yet things to discover, and i certainly hope that we will never give up in our faith and imagination, besides of course, without faith or imagination, many things would not be done in this present world.

okay.to everyone who says its possible that there are living beings in the ocean we dont know about,thats right.but mermaids are,in a "evolutionary" point of view completely senseless.like a centaur.it doesnt make sense and cant work as half as good as a normal fish body,nature dont makes mistakes.so they cant be real.and god is also a fairytale.read: the bible says god created the world in 7 days.many christians tell me that this is just a symbolic number,of course you can explain it with science,but still from the christian point of view,right?WRONG.fact is,"god" created animals of sea and sky on day 5 ,and land living animals on day 6.the funny part comes now,birds came to earth after the dinosaurs,land living dinosaurs.so it does not match.christians,read this another time,and then,without being ashamed,look in the mirror and say you believe that shit.excuse my bad english,im german.peace out.except for christians or idiots who believe in mermaids.
