Facts and Legends
Next, let us take a look at the article at LiveScience entitled Mermaids & Mermen: Facts & Legends. The first section of the article presents a short discussion of merfolk in ancient times.
Then, the article moves on to modern times, where we find that merfolk never lost their allure.
"There are many legends about mermaids and even a few dozen historical claims of supposedly 'real' mermaid sightings."
Keep the magic alive, merfolk!
Chloe Grace Moretz, the lead in the live-action version of The Little Mermaid, recently shared some information about the upcoming movie. ET Online has the story.
Ms. Moretz noted that since the movie is more in line with Hans Christian Andersen novel than Disney's version, her character will have blonde hair instead of red hair.
"Moretz said that she's very excited to bring this new version of the famous fable to the big screen, and recalled the elation she felt when she first found out she had been cast as the eponymous mermaid."
At this time there is no announced release date for the movie.
Rare Deep-Sea Squid
A rare deep-sea squid, Taningia Danae (Whiplash Squid), has been caught on camera. CNN and NOAA present a one-minute video of the squid for all of us ocean fans to enjoy.
"An expedition in the Pacific Ocean captured footage of a deep-sea squid, which is rarely seen alive."
