I saw the post on Dreamland Resort with a link to a page where a man claims to have photographed a "TR-3B."
IMHO at first look the photos look like appear to be badly faked Photoshopped images, but i haven't had time to analyze them yet.

The first thing that makes me suspicious is the lack of EXIF data. Most digital cameras have EXIF data embedded and unless this was taken with an older camera ( type not stated but the photographer did state it uses SD cards so there should be data) or the EXIF data was intentionally wiped.

No photographer's name or contact info is listed as well. I've tried contacting the webmaster to see if the original images are available but haven't received a reply.

Take a look for yourself:

I'll post a more comprehensive report later.
