    I always wondered how mermaids reproduced.

    somehow i remember that(‘guess read it somewhere),they have a double line..can’t find the right word..i’m talking about the mouth-teeth..they are able to smile as a human but behind the wonderful smile they can retract as extend the second line of “fangs”they use to catch their prey(sometime human)..that’s not what u ask but i hope u’ll find out more..very interesting subject though..regards, Jacopo.
