Tiny Creatures Revisited
The lead story in my May 6th blog post was Tiny Creatures, an article about the many organisms lurking in seawater. In another recent article by Jason G.

Anatomy and Myths of a Mermaid
Not long ago, the subject of shallow water and deep water mermaids came up. A quick Internet search uncovered a related article, Anatomy and Myths of a Mermaid.
Here we meet Costine, a shallow water mermaid.
Swim on over to Psion Nation and see if Costine's article doesn't tickle your imagination.
Best wishes and starfishes,
