Meet the real-life merman Published: April 4, 2013

Can you imagine living life as a mermaid or merman?

This Florida local actually does.

Eric Ducharme, 22, is one of the latest characters to appear on TLC’s “My Crazy Obsession,” according to The Daily Mail.

Three times a week, Ducharme drives more than an hour and a half to swim in one of his shimmering handmade suits at a natural spring, The Daily Mail reports.

“When I put on a tail, I feel transformed,” Ducharme said. “I feel like I’m starting to enter into a different world when I hit the water.”
