Are you visiting the DEMA 2015 in Orlando?
You are 90 miles away from swimming with live mermaids!
Mermaids are associated with the mythological Greek sirens as well as with sirenia, a biological order comprising dugongs and manatees. Some of the historical sightings by sailors may have been misunderstood encounters with these aquatic mammals. Cristopher Colombus reported seeing mermaids while exploring the Caribbean.
