The midsection of the body in the photos appears to be decaying, while the head and tail are relatively intact.

Some believe Jones may have spotted the actual remains of a mythical mermaid. Others are more skeptical and believe the "mermaid" in the photos may actually be the remains of a seal, of which there are many in the area.

Jones' Facebook page shows that he is a modeler and a member of the "Horror and Halloween DIY" group, leading some to believe Jones himself created the remains and placed them on the beach, the Daily Mirror reports.
