Think of world's most mythical creatures and your mind probably takes you to times of olde when fantastical stories travelled on the wind and embedded themselves in the minds of a far more gullible human race. We know better than that now, and an absence of proof is, to modern man, as good as proof of absence. But is it?
If there's one lesson humanity should have learned repeatedly by now, it's that every time we think we know something for definite, we absolutely don't. No sooner has modern science looked at the evidence available and dismissed a theory, have new findings emerged to throw all that skepticism into question.
While it's hard to carry that thinking over to the legendary and supernatural, the amount of corroborated sightings and grainy documentation of some of the world's most fantastical beings has been mounting up over the last decade or so. An open mind is perhaps required but, if you've got one, the evidence for mermaids, pixies, dragons, and whatever else, is steadily mounting.
