It’s funny to think how folks in the 18th century tried to cobble a merman out of monkey and fish body parts, and today, we think of mermans as these lithe, mythical, fairytale-like beings. Now we’ve just found out about a guy from Florida who has custom-built a shimmering latex merman fin for himself and is now making a merman lifestyle for himself in the Florida springs.

If you’re similarly inclined, you’ll be happy to know there are places you can buy your own functional mermaid or merman fin at online too. We’ll try not to foray into your territory.
