A smaller species of mermaids. Their average length is between 80 and 100 feet. They possess a more elastic tail and prefer the shallower fresh waters of river tributaries. They're fast and very agile and often catch prey stuck in the mangroves and other river vegetation. They can easily jump out of the water and can even climb trees for a short distance. They are also a lot less clumsy on land than other merfolk and can use their powerful tail to bounce along the ground in rapid succession. River Mermaids are found in most places, anywhere from frigid mountain streams to jungle rivers, to swampy estuaries at the mouth of a river. Their color varies greatly depending on their location.
