Animal Planet's Imaginary Dr. Paul Robertson And "NOAA Fisheries Dept" Probably Found An Ama, Not A Mermaid Bigfoot Evidence
A guest blogger on Bigfoot Evidence has a likely theory for mermaid sightings centuries ago. She thinks they may have been Amas, deep-sea divers, a theory which makes a good deal of sense. However, the most interesting mystery surrounding Animal Planet's rather ridiculous and silly mermaid mockumentary is how people can be gullible enough to believe it as fact. The arguments being played out all over the internet right now are far more entertaining than the show itself. Meanwhile in Michigan, Bigfoot's much less famous cousin, the Nain Rouge, is getting a bit of attention as writer David Claerr recounts his encounter with the bizarre primate: The Demon of the Straits Revisited. Claerr spotted the creature huddled in the middle of a field, crouched down and doing its best tree stump imitation while peering at him under its arm. Understandably alarmed, he tossed a rock at it and watched it run away with a decidedly primate-like gait. And finally, Richard F goes to Boggy Creek and tells us he liked it. He highly recommends The Legend of Boggy Creek by Lyle Blackburn.
