The world is surrounded by the fascinating and unbelievable creatures of God, out of which the humans add just a little value to the overall sum. While others in the shape of birds and animals either live in water or on the land. But what if you get to know and see the creature which is apparently the mixture of both__human and animal. Wouldn’t it be surprising and wondering? I think it definitely would force you to imagine an unimaginable thing. There is something called a Mermaid. That is believed to be a type of animal and creature which is famously live in water with the upper part of a body seems to be similar to female human and having the tail of a fish.
Moreover, Mermaids appear in the traditional stories of many cultures worldwide, including Europe, Africa, and Asia. The first stories emerged in ancient Assyria, in which the goddess Atargatis is said to transform herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover. Surprisingly, Mermaids are often linked with dangerous events such as floods, storms, shipwrecks and drownings. On the other hand, some stories tell that they can be of beneficial in nature as they bestow good fortunes or falling in love with humans.
Furthermore, Some of the characteristics of mermaids may have been influenced by the Sirens of Greek mythology. Keeping in view of historical scripts of mermaids, such as those reported by Christopher Columbus during his exploration of the Caribbean, may have been inspired by manatees and similar aquatic mammals. However, there couldn’t be any evidence available which validated that mermaids exist outside of folklore but there always been reports of mermaid sightings till today.
