Mermaid Spotting

Planning for this year's vacation? Molly McArdle of Travel and Leisure magazine provides a list of ten places for Mermaid-Spotting in America.

"Today, mermaids (okay-humans in mermaid costumes) can be found across the United States, from roadside attractions to popular festivals."

In addition to the ten places listed in the article, local Renaissance Faires, such as the one in Waxahachie, Texas (April/May) may also feature mermaids.

Mako Mermaids Season 4

Mako Island Resort, the place for information on the Mako Mermaids television program, brings us good news: Mako Mermaids season 4 is on the way.

Details on Season 4 can be found at the Mako Island web site. This season adds a Chinese mermaid, Weilan, played by Linda Ngo. Note that there are no details as yet on when we see season 4 episodes on Netflix.

Fans of H2O: Just Add Water will be excited to hear that Rikki (played by Cariba Heine) will be guest starring in Mako Mermaids this season. Back to the web site for more information.

Song of the Deep

Last week, Digital Trends carried the story of an upcoming release from Insomniac Games, Song of the Deep.

"Inspired, in part, by Irish mythology, Song of the Deep tells the story of 12-year-old Merryn, who explores the ocean in a hastily built submarine to find her father, who’s been lost at sea."

Song of the Deep will be available in the spring for selected platforms exclusively through GameStop.

The article includes a short video to introduce you to the game.

Purple Sock Worm

Researchers have recently released a study of deep water worm-like creatures that resemble a discarded sock. Mermaids and mermen should know about this kind of thing, right?

"The unusual creatures have been called everything from flatworms to mollusks, but the Scripps Institute of Oceanography now refers to them as deep-sea worms."

Read more about the brainless purple sock worm in this article from Amanda Kooser of C|Net Science and Technology. This article also includes a short video.
