    Of interest, when the Museum of Natural History was running the exhibit, Dragons, Unicorns and Mermaids, a “feejee mermaid” made an appearance. She even posed at the real thing! They claim the monstrosity in taxidermy is over 100 years old, and was discovered in 1973. This specimen may currently reside in the Peabody Museum.

    Very informative, but I’ve seen a picture of P.T. Barnum himself holding the creature and displaying it at something like a press conference. I’m not sure if it was actual picture or footage though.
