Mermaid



Mermaids have been the subject of tales and legends for centuries and even in recent years people have reported sightings of a creature that is essentially half human female, half fish, in the oceans around the world. Although most reports of Mermaids are either hoaxes or a case of mis-identified marine animals some cases remain baffling. A strange series of Mermaid sightings off the West coast of Scotland in 1814 is one such example.

Scientists generally agree however that the 'mermaid' form is biologically impossible and indicating that the legend of the Mermaid is most likely just that, a legend.
