What is a Mermaid
Mermaids have been popular since the beginning of civilization. Throughout time, legends have ranged from fantasy underwater princess to dangerous sea creatures.
A mermaid is always a girl. Their male counterparts are mermen, but aren’t nearly as popular as mermaids.
Like other mythical creatures, the idea of the mermaid has evolved with the societies that love them. Mermaids have always been mythological creatures with a fishtail and scales on the lower half of their body instead of legs, and human top half of the body.
They are considered a magical creature. They are known to love music. They have some similarities to sirens, but they are a different creature.
The common fairy tale myth of recent years depicts the mermaid with long hair and a beautiful face. The mermaid tail is graceful.
The mermaid particularly appeals to girl children who love fairy tales and fantasy. If you have a girl that loves mermaids, they will love these fun coloring pages.
