Real or not? You see a picture and something about it seems odd or wrong. Are your eyes deceiving you? Can you believe it or not? For the Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong, I have a photograph of a mermaid and pink snake. I ask you if they are real or not?
Real or not? It’s the real deal. Nature creates a vast diversity of life and some amazing creatures. The albino snake does not produce enough melanin to give it a normal snake pigmentation, and so it appears pink.
Real or not? Not. This is a man-made mermaid that was not created by nature. It’s a hoax, created in 1842 and made popular by P.T. Barnum and Robert Ripley, that was made by combining the skeleton of a monkey and a fish with lots of papier-mache. I snapped the picture at an exhibit on art.
