| "'Feejee Mermaid' has become the generic term for the many fake mermaids that can be found around the world..."
This article contains information relating to a hoax. According to Cambridge dictionary a hoax is "a plan to deceive a large group of people; a trick."
The squid appeared on Twitter all days, with hashtags such as #RadioactiveGigantism or #GiantSeaCreature.
The squid is real but not the photo. The squid is from a photo of a Giant Squid that washed up in Cantabria, Spain. The squid was made bigger and put in a photo of a beached whale in Chile. This just shows that hoaxers are getting worse as the years go past.
