Animal Planet recently aired a documentary titled "Mermaids: The Body Found" providing graphic proof that mermaids exist. There's just one problem: it's more science fiction than science fact. The press release tries to ground the mockumentary:
Rilla the mermaid lives in the Atlantic Ocean, she loves to hunt shipwrecks for treasure and recently found two new glass bangles which she loves. Rilla has a flesh and blue cotton body with ribbon trims at her bikini top and waist. She has blue glass bangles and blue merino wool hair.
