Fun Facts about Mermaids:

  1. Mermaids are presented in almost every culture across the world as beautiful women who have fish tails as the lower half of their bodies (sometimes snake tails), long hair and beautiful voices that can mesmerize or hypnotize men who hear it.

  1. Some of the powers of the mermaid are immortality, seeing the future, telepathy and hypnosis.
  1. Modern day view of mermaids is often mixed with sirens who are much more aggressive and dangerous creatures.

  1. Mermaids are the female members of the underwater race of merfolk. Males are called mermen and are supposedly ever more shy and secretive than their female counterparts.
  1. Mermaids can today be seen in many corporate logos and official seals. Sirens were also the inspiration for naming the "sirenia" order of water dwelling herbivorous mammals.
