On July 23, I spoke via phone with Eric Ducharme, a merman and mertailor. This year, he was featured on TLC’s “My Crazy Obsession,” which showed his passion for mermaids, creating mermaid tails and swimming underwater at a natural spring in Florida.
The NOAA have been forced to issue a statement saying there is no evidence that half-human, half-fish "humanoids" exist after they received several phone calls following a fictional Animal Planet documentary titled "Mermaids: The Body Found."
The classical water-dwelling creatures known as mermaids are reclaiming media attention and taking the place of vampires and werewolves. Myths and folklore about mermaids have been told for thousands of years and some even believe they actually exist.
