The Siren Strikes1 Picture

While everyone was doing the pretty and cool mermaids. I suddenly hit upon the grisly side of the fishy deep.

What if the mermaid...aka Greek mythology, was more akin to a deep sea angler fish that only comes to the surface in the night? Think about all the ghoulish activities and design of such a creature. Elastic-see through stomach, bio-luminescence body parts, fangs, pupil less eyes, shredded fins, parasitic males, etc. [Fact is stranger than fiction...and definitely creepier. ]

I definitely wouldn't want to swim into this one!
