Urban legend suggests that Merman exist somewhere very deep in the sea. These Merman are believed to be nothing like what movies like “The Little Mermaid” suggest. Rather, many believe Mermen are more like sea creatures, but with some human like characteristics, including intelligence. Humans have been able to reach deep sea only to a certain point, but not far enough where the Merman are believed to exist. It is whispered that these merman make calling sounds underwater that can reach very long distances, as well as communicate with animals. Many sea animals like squid, whales and dolphins have been found dead washed up on shore. Usually, those animals that are found by people can be confirmed the general cause of death. However, there have been a few rare cases where the cause of death of these animals is very mysterious. Some scientists believe some strange sea creature, possibly a Merman, killed these animals.

Mermen are believed to be the supreme rulers of the deep sea. The deep sea is allegedly filled with plenty of exotic and anomalous creatures, like the giant squid. If the giant squid were to exist, what is to say the Merman does not? Some assume that as we continue to advance in technology and have a bettern understanding of the deep sea, it will get us closer to discovering Mermen.
