During the holidays, the Planet Ocean complex, in Montpellier (Hérault), welcomes an astonishing creature: a mermaid, Lexie.

Visitors will be able to meet her, every day, or discover her show, in the middle of tropical fish.

Spoiler: If the illusion is stunning when she surveys the coral lagoon of the Hérault aquarium, Lexie is actually a 29-year-old stylist and graphic designer from the North of France, who traded her computer for a fin.

The young woman has passed freediving diplomas, to become a "professional mermaid", she smiles.

Her record: 3.57 minutes in a static position, and 40 seconds when she has her imposing fin.

"For me, it's a bit like second nature, I played, as a child, at the

Little Mermaid

," she laughs.

I trained a little, in spite of myself, when I was young!
