A creature assembling a Mermaid discovered in Antarctica: Google Earth user provides evidence

A Google Earth user spoke about the incredible discovery that he managed to make in Antarctica. Thanks to the rather rapid melting of the ice, he managed to consider a strange creature in one of the images received.

He claims to have found a frozen mermaid in the ice, or a “sea creature resembling a mermaid.” YouTube user Florida Maquis claims that the mermaid is by no means a natural geological formation. 

The man believes that either a mermaid or some obscure sea creature froze in the ice, which very much resembles a popular mythical creature. At the same time, the user is trying to prove that his find has absolutely nothing to do with natural formations of a geological nature. The user is sure that this is some unusual creature from mythical stories. He says:

“I found in Antarctica many different things that seem to be sea creatures. I think that due to the melting of snow and ice, the mermaid became visible, its shape simply cannot be explained by ice crumbs or snow.” The coordinates of the mermaid-like object are 76 ° 52’51.92 “S 145 ° 42’4.27” W.

The video above was posted online with confirmation of the man’s words. It was watched by several thousand people who commented on what they saw. Most users are sure that the video does not contain a mermaid, but, for example, a walrus. Some believe that this may turn out to be a dolphin of a sufficiently large size. Some say it could be a Ningen. The author also found support from some users who have no doubt that the mermaid is depicted in the frames.

Ningen: A Humanoid Monster Hiding in the Antarctic

Since the early 2000s, there have been rumors of a creature allegedly spotted by Japanese researchers in the Antarctic. Since the appearance of the first messages, interest in this mysterious creature has grown, fueled on the Internet by alleged photos and videos. The creature was named Ningen, a Japanese term meaning “man.”

First observation

It is unclear when the Ningen was first seen, but the most popular version of this appears to come from a 2chan blog post. The blogger claimed to have collaborated with a whale-owned state research institute. He was allegedly told the story of a meeting with a mysterious creature. The crew initially suggested that it was a foreign submarine. However, when an unknown large object approached, the sailors realized that it was a living creature.

This topic gained great popularity, which only increased when an article about Ningen was published in 2007 in the Japanese magazine MU, devoted to paranormal phenomena. The article deserves attention not only because of the growing interest in Ningens in Japan, but also because it contained an image of Google Maps, which, presumably, was this creature.

After the article was published, numerous photos and videos began to appear on the Internet, which allegedly depict the creature. Some photos of Ningen can be traced at least until 2006, which suggests that these images may have preceded the creature’s popularity.

Appearance

Judging by eyewitnesses, the length of the Ningen is estimated at 20-30 meters. It is completely white and has a human shape. Messages diverge depending on whether he has legs, five-fingered hands or even fins, a tail, like a mermaid or tentacle. Eyewitnesses seem to agree that Ningen does not have any distinctive features that could be spoken of, although he has a mouth and eyes. In a Gaia.com article, the creature, in particular, is described as “with a small slit-like mouth and two empty eyes .”

Conspiracy

There is no convincing evidence to support the existence of Ningen. However, since in most cases an unidentified creature may be mentioned, this did not stop the rampant speculation on the Internet.

The most popular rumor spreading about the Ningen is that the Japanese government actually took messages about the creature seriously, but hid all the real evidence. But why should the Japanese government do this?

One theory is that Ningen, whatever it may be, is capable of producing a rare chemical compound that has healing properties, or that it is very toxic, and the government intends to investigate this creature.

Some went even further with this conspiracy theory , suggesting that numerous low-quality photos and videos are in fact a government disinformation campaign in an attempt to discredit factual evidence of Ningen.

However, the lack of high-quality photographs was also explained by the fact that the observations appear to occur most often at night, which complicates their documentation.

There were also rumors that men in black came to eyewitnessesThis, of course, is not confirmed (because “men in black” would not be true professionals if there was convincing evidence of their visits), and it is unclear whether this implies that the Ningen is of alien origin?

Explanations

Due to the alleged elusiveness of Ningen, cryptozoologists were not able to directly study the creature. Because of this, all information comes from eyewitnesses and photo and video evidence, often of poor quality, such as the following:

Based on available data, some suggest that Ningen cannot be a living creature at all, as many photos of the creature look more like blocks of ice. Those who think that Ningen is a living creature consider him a giant albino stingray, white whale or beluga whale. Some explanations have gone so far as to suggest that it could be a water sloth or even a mermaid, an alien, or some previously unknown species of aquatic humanoids.

Those who do not believe in the existence of Ningen have been suggested that the stories of this creature are just a modern embodiment of old tales of sea monsters.

Ningyo

Some experts made a connection between the stories of Ningen and Ningyo, a creature from Japanese folklore.

Ningyo is a term meaning “human fish”, although it is often translated as “mermaid”. This fish-like creature is described as having a monkey mouth, small teeth, golden scales and a quiet, flute-like voice.

It is very tasty, and the use of its meat in food significantly increases a person’s life span. However, they say that catching a ningyo brings storms and misfortunes, so if a fisherman ever caught a ningyo, he usually released it back into the sea to avoid possible consequences. Seeing a ningyo ashore is considered an omen of war or some other great calamity.

Perhaps, given that rumors about Ningen originate on a Japanese site and are further popularized by a Japanese magazine, they may turn out to be a modern interpretation of folklore about Ningyo.

So what (or who) is Ningen? Well, that could be pretty much anything. Personally, we are inclined to believe that this is a natural evolution of ancient folklore, adapted to modern times. But, true, this is not as interesting as a giant monster hiding somewhere in the waters of the Antarctic.

Orang Ikan – Mermaids from Indonesia

Mermaids live in the folklore of most peoples. Indonesians call their mermaids, orang ikan. The orang in translation from the local language is “man”, and Ikan is “fish”.

Where do Orang Ikan live?

They chose for themselves the Kai Islands in the province of Maluku. These islands are famous for their white sandy beaches, amazingly clear water and are a real gem.

In 1943, when the Japanese landed there, the soldiers immediately began reporting that they were observing some strange creatures. Those were seen in coastal waters, looked like a man, especially the face and hands.Their mouth was described as very wide and similar to the mouth of a carp.

They barely reached one and a half meters, their skin was pink, and on their head were some spikes. At the same time, unlike the classic mermaids, they had ordinary human legs, not fish tails.

These creatures swam in shallow water near the beaches. It happened that they were selected on land.

The style of their swimming seemed to the Japanese like a breaststroke. One night, one of the soldiers went swimming and saw a creature in the sand, which he at first mistook for a child.

But when it turned to face him, he saw that his features were not like human ones. Immediately after this, the creature scooted into the water and disappeared. The soldier peered into the water for a while, but the creature never surfaced.

Fishermen said that sometimes these creatures get on their nets, and the Japanese asked if this happens again, to deliver Orang Ikan to them.

Real story

One day, Sergeant Taro Horibu was called to the village, where, as it turned out, a dead fish man was found on the shore. The creature was picked up and brought to the elders’ house, where Horibu was able to examine it.

“It was 160 centimeters tall, had long dark hair with a reddish tinge. His neck was covered with spikes, his face seemed to the Japanese like a monkey face with a wide fish mouth, in which there were a lot of small sharp teeth. Between the fingers and toes the fishman’s membranes were stretched, and the body was dotted with strange growths that looked like algae ”
– Horibu said.

Sergeant Horibu said the creature was not like anything known to him. Unable to photograph or sketch the creature, he limited himself to oral stories, but many considered him a liar or an inventor.

Eyewitnesses talk about their encounters with humanoid insects

Humanoid insect-like creatures are some of the most frightening cryptids. Sudden movements, thin long limbs, similar to arachnids or cockroaches, these creatures seem to come from nightmares.

Here are some eyewitness accounts that have encountered such creatures.

This story was told in September 2016 on Coast To Coast AM paranormal radio. The narrator went camping with his family and friend in Sequoia National Park, southern Sierra Nevada, California.

This park is famous for its giant ancient redwoods. The majestic trees give the local landscape a special, fabulous atmosphere.

In the evening, while camping, the eyewitness sees something very strange there.

He tells:

“About 9 pm, all my relatives already wanted to sleep and went into their tent. Only my friend and I stayed by the fire. But, I was bored and decided to take my iPod out of my pack to listen to music with headphones.

I went to the car and opened the back door. Then suddenly I saw that there was something infront, next to a tree. In the darkness, I saw the outline of something great.

When I aimed the lantern, I swear, I saw a huge mantis, almost 2 meters tall. When I saw it I froze, I held my breath and stared at it. I was shocked.

Then, this creature stepped back and … disappeared. It was as if it had become completely invisible. I couldn’t believe my eyes.

When the shock passed, I slammed the car door, ran back to the fire, and told my friend everything. I started waking my loved ones telling them about the “mantis”. But, they didn’t believe me, even though I was apparently horrified. They even started laughing at me.

Suddenly strange noises were heard, which others also heard. It was like a very sharp click. It was all so weird and I was really scared. ”

What the creature is, the author of this story did not understand. He no longer heard or saw anything strange in the park.

The following story is taken from the archive of the researcher Albert Rosales and is taking place in Poland. An eyewitness is a tourist who goes camping in the forests of the Greater Poland Voivodeship, in the western part of the country.

The woman installed her tent near a small forest lake, and then went to look around. In the evening, she returned to the tent. As she approached her, she noticed an unusual figure crouching by the lake.

At first, she though it was another tourist, surprising as this area is very isolated and away from hiking trails. But as she began to approach, about 15 steps from the figure, she realized that she was not human.

The structure of its body was humanoid but similar to an insect. At a height (in a sitting position) it was about a meter and a half, with thin long limbs and grayish-beige color. The creature had huge black eyes, similar to the facet eyes of an insect, and on the back were thin, translucent and fragile entities such as wings.

Hearing the woman approaching, the creature turned to her. She was surprised to realize that she was not alone.

The woman shares:

“It was looking at me. I also looked at it and didn’t know what it was going to do. Our meeting was casual and unexpected for both of us. “

The creature quickly disappeared and the woman didn’t even know where. After that, she quickly gathered her things and left the area.

The story described below happened to a resident of Ontario, Canada, and was sent to mysterious creature researcher Lon Strickler. 

At the time this was happening, the eyewitness was still a child and lived with his family in a remote mountainous area.

The Canadian says:

“The summer of 1968 turned out to be very hot and stuffy. In those years, no one had air conditioning, so we just left all the windows in the house open day and night. I slept in the nursery where my older brother and sister were in addition to my bed.

One night, I suddenly woke up to some noise. I got up and went to the open window. From there, I saw a strange creature in the backyard.

This creature was squatting beside a bush, resembling both a human and an insect. It was thin, with black shiny skin. Suddenly, it looked up at me. I saw some antennas or thin needles sticking out of his head.

That’s all I remember. I don’t remember what happened after that. The next morning I told my mother about it, but she decided I was just having a nightmare. But in the years that followed, I saw this creature twice more at night. I’m convinced it’s not a dream. ”

Another story was sent to the ufology website at MUFON and describes a strange incident that occurred in April 2016 in the vicinity of Ziggy village, Cyprus. An eyewitness said that that evening, there was a friendly party in the yard of her house with sandwiches, treats and various soft drinks.

At one point, only she and her friend stayed out. The others entered the house. Suddenly, her friend noticed a flicker moving slowly across the sky. At first, the woman thought it was a comet. But, the object was moving too slowly. For a moment, she remained completely still among the stars.

In a few minutes, this object descended so low that it was near the line of the nearby tree tops. Then it became apparent that this object had a triangular shape.

The woman says:

“We wanted to get close to it, but all of a sudden, my friend and I felt paralysed. We were lying on loungers and could hardly move.

Meanwhile, a humanoid figure emerged from this ship with the head of an ant, flaky skin on the body, like a crocodile. It had many tiny eyes and weak long limbs. This creature came very close to the fence in our yard, but then turned abruptly and disappeared into the darkness. Then the triangle ship flew west and disappeared completely.

Later, my friend and I remembered that when we were lying on deck chairs and the creature was standing by our fence, there was some strange “tool” in its hands. ”

The October 8, 2017 issue of Strange Magazine published an eyewitness story that recounted an incident that occurred in 1948 in Bremen, Washington.

On her day off, Virginia Staples walked with a basket of dirty clothes to the laundry room in the basement of her apartment building. The girl regularly used washing machines in this basement and nothing unusual happened to her.

The grim cellar had long been in need of repair. In places there were holes in the walls and the floor, there were water leaks. Water was said to have seeped through the canals of the local port.

The basement looked always scary, but on this day, Virginia was especially scared. She felt a strong sense of anxiety as she went down into the basement. The light bulb barely illuminated part of the room. The rest was at dusk and the shadows seemed to be moving.

Virginia began filling one of the laundries, and the sinister sensation increased. She shares:

“I suddenly felt a lot of fear. I turned and looked at the back of the room. I froze in place. I couldn’t move in fear because there was a creature in one of the holes in the floor. It had a bright orange color, its weak limbs resembled the legs of a spider, and the antennas on its head moved back and forth.

I ran out of the basement, reached my apartment, packed up all my belongings as quickly as possible, and left. I was terribly scared and couldn’t even stay in this city.

I went to Seattle with my cousin. No one believes me, but God testifies to me, it really happened!
