You’ve all seen or at the very least heard of Ariel from The Little Mermaid, or maybe you’re a fan of Daryl Hannah’s interpretation of a mermaid as Madison from the film Splash. But for the most part, we all know that they’re a myth and don’t exist anywhere but in the pages of a fiction novel, a children’s story, or a movie.
But then a real life mermaid was found on the beaches of Hawaii and Egypt back in 2014 and it made people start to question what’s real and what wasn’t.
Who doesn’t know what a mermaid is these days with all the exposure they’ve gotten?
It’s a creature with the head, arms and torso of a human, but the lower body of a fish. It sounds kind of funky, but not nearly as much as the fact that a real mermaid allegedly washed ashore on a beach.
