Who was the first person to see a mermaid?
On this day in 1493, Italian explorer Christopher Columbus, sailing near the Dominican Republic, sees three “mermaids”–in reality, manatees–and describes them as “not half as beautiful as they are painted.” Six months earlier, Columbus (1451-1506) set off from Spain across the Atlantic Ocean with the Nina, Pinta.

How are mermaids born? Once again, assuming mermaids reproduce the way fish do, mermaid babies would be delivered by hatching from eggs. However, mermaids can get pregnant and give live birth like dolphins.
