Eric Ducharme, 22, of Florida, is a self-proclaimed merman.

Ducharme loves to swim, but when he does, he will wear a latex tail. He said that he has been obsessed with mermaids for as long as he can remember. According to the Daily Mail, Ducharme says he eats, sleeps and breathes mermaids while physically looking and acting like one as often as time allows.

Because this is very unusual, Ducharme receives a lot of stares, but he just ignores them. He drives out to Florida Springs at least three times a week to put on his tail and swim around.

He started off at 13 by making his own tails out of garbage bags. His friends, family and boyfriend all accept his merman lifestyle.
