The twenty-two year old female informant born in the Gabonese Republic, a state located on the west coast of Central Africa revealed, there are places where mermaids live. According to my informant, people can go to these locations. And if they “comb their hair with it, it will grow long” rapidly. According to my informant mermaids are engraved in Gabonese history. They are mythical creatures that are not fully spirit and not fully human.
