Mythical creature

The Merlion is Singapore’s mascot. It is a figure with the head of a lion, which represents Singapora (the original name) or lion city, and the body of a fish, which symbolizes the beginning of Singapore as a fishing village.
The original Merlion sits in a plaza built for it. This one is 37 meters high and rises up to 60 meters above sea level. It is in Sentosa.

    • Can fish be ridden? After all it is the body of a fish…
      But who knows… there are a few around though… and not its first appearance in PicOfTheDay… If you look closely you will see that it has been here before… Just didn’t know what it was.
