When one of our Wonder Friends asked whether mermaids were real, the first person we thought to ask was Myrtle. Myrtle is the Wonderopolis mermaid that lives in the depths of the Wonder Sea. Myrtle quickly pointed out that, although mermaids exist in Wonderopolis, they've never been found in the oceans , seas , rivers, lakes , or ponds of Earth. Even though mermaids aren't real, they have fascinated us for thousands of years. But what exactly is a mermaid? Specifically, they usually envision a beautiful woman whose legs have been replaced by the long tail of a fish. Of course, the myths and legends of mermaids also include male mermaids, known usually as mermen.
In folklore , a mermaid is an aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. In ancient Assyria the goddess Atargatis transformed herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover. Mermaids are sometimes associated with perilous events such as floods, storms, shipwrecks, and drownings. In other folk traditions or sometimes within the same tradition , they can be benevolent or beneficent, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans. The male equivalent of the mermaid is the merman , also a familiar figure in folklore and heraldry.
