POTC'S Mermaid Queen Tamara: Fins, Fangs, & All

Here's a recent screencap from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides that features the mermaid Queen Tamara about to munch on some unsuspecting sailor. While newcomers to the mermaid legend might think she's a vampire of the seas, mermaids in nautical folklore weren't very sweet and docile, either. I'm really liking how they're portraying mermaids in this movie: animals while under the water, but human on the surface. And look at those fangs! I wouldn't want to be the pirate she set her sights on!

Also, Pirates of the Caribbean 4 comes out next Friday on the 20th, and I can't wait! Will any of you be going to its opening night to see its fish-tailed cast members?
