What are mermaids?

Mermaids are aquatic creatures with the body of a female and the tail of a fish. They appear in the folklore of cultures worldwide, including Greek mythology’s sirens. The male equivalent creature is called a merman.

One of the most famous mermaids comes from Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid” and its Disney animated film.
