Giant Squid Photo in California - Facebook Rumour
An image of what appears to be a giant squid is circulating Facebook linking to an article that claims the creature washed up in California and is the result of genetic mutation after the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster.
However, as many of our more sceptical readers may have already suspected, the image is fake, just a digital manipulation achieved by placing a much small image of a squid onto a beach that originally contained the image of a whale. Both images are below so you can see for yourself that the image is nothing more than hokum.
The site that is linked to, called lightlybraisedturnip.com, is an entertainment site that prints satirical content and should not be taken seriously. Unless you really believe that Santa Claus sat down with them to talk about diversity and globalisation.
