mermaids using ultrasonic wavelengths to communicate short distances and to sense their surroundings in dark water is really cool, but also consider mermaids with subsonic range singing messages to each other like whales from dozens of leagues away.

@Sapphicgiraffic this, to me, suggests that the mermaid would have an equivalent organ to a cetacean's "melon", but—OH MY GOD, THAT'S WHAT THE BOOBS ARE

@maidofclay finally, the mystery of mermaid titties revealed 🧜🏽‍♀️

@Sapphicgiraffic local golem heard screaming, "their melons are MELONS!", as her girlfriends try to convince her to go back to bed

@maidofclay @Sapphicgiraffic if that were the case, then the sound-producing organ should be at the junction of the trachea, or even be bifurcated and located on each lung.

Weirdly enough, that wouldn't be that hard to occur evolutively...
