A mermaid is a mythological creature with a female human head and upper body and the tail of a fish. Mermaids live mostly in the water, although sometimes they are known to come out and sit on the rocks above the sea.
They are said to have such lovely voices that sailors are drawn to them by their songs. Some stories also claim that mermaids can predict the future.
