- Are Beluga whales mermaids?
Beluga whales have often been mistaken as mermaids, due to their human-like knees. Various sailors have reported to have seen mermaids for years. Seems, most of them have seen Beluga whales out in water, and not human-like fish.
This fish is native to Arctic waters. Due to some different and unique anatomical and physiological traits, it stands out from the other species of whale. It is white in colour and does not have dorsal fin. But, due to the presence of human knee-like formation on its body, it is mistaken to be sea siren sometime.
