You might remember that waaay back at the start of October, mermaid Melusine and myself swam all the way across the UK and up to Edinburgh to perform at Deep Sea World aquarium, where we appeared swimming alongside their seven huge sand tiger sharks! We've put together a video showing our real life mermaids swimming with sharks, which you can see below - or visit our YouTube channel where you can see even more amazing underwater footage of real mermaids.
We also had the opportunity to meet an incredible array of different creatures who live in the aquarium, including two adorable seals, an alligator snapping turtle named Godzilla, and a whole shoal of piranha (we decided against joining them in their tank...). Mermaid Melusine made a particularly strong impression on one little batfish in the tropical rock pools, and every time she was in there, he would swim right up and kiss her hand. After a while we decided to call him Eric, after the prince in Disney's The Little Mermaid - although unlike Eric in the film, he was much less shy about kissing the girl!
Over the course of the Magical Mermaids weekend we met so many little mermaid fans, and it was lovely to chat to them all and answer their questions about life under the sea.
