'Mermaids: The Body Found': Could This Be A Real Mermaid On A Beach? (VIDEO)

The idea of mermaids has tantalized seafarers for millenia, and as part of Monster Week on Animal Planet, the network aired Charlie Foley's "speculative documentary" on the aquatic creatures.

Could mermaids actually exist?

"Mermaids: The Body Found" (Sun., 9 p.m. ET on Animal Planet) posed questions like, what would mermaids look like (let's just say, these CGI mermaids weren't wearing bikini tops made out of sea shells) and how would they reproduce?

The film contained never before seen footage of what was purported to be a mermaid washed up on a beach in Washington State. Not only was the creature alive, it was far removed from the hair-combing fairytale mermaids of yore, and it seemed pretty pissed.
