A video shared on social media shows inhabitants of an African nation gathered around a juvenile mermaid.
The aquatic monster, whose existence is still questioned by many, washed up on a riverbank and onto a beach.
The young mermaid’s hair seemed to be bewigged, and instead of legs, it had fish fins that writhed on the floor.
The mermaid was found alive on the shore in the viral footage, although in a weakened condition.
