Verse 21:"And God created the great sea monsters, and every living creature that crawls, with which the waters swarmed, according to their kind, and every winged fowl, according to its kind, and God saw that it was good."
“Every living creature”: There are no half creatures in the sky. But in the waters, there are. The mermaid; which is a half fish, half man creature. (Sanhedrin 64a, Rashi in Bechorot 8a, Midrash Safra Shemini 3:7, Chidah in his sefer Medaber Kadimot Vol. 4, Yad Ramah 63 “Metiv”)
