How do mermaids breathe underwater?


Wiki User

Well, it's a matter of opinion. I think mermaids have gills on their neck or sides, or maybe they breath air, and can hold it for hours like dolphins and whales.


I reckon the latter option, but given no-one has seen a mermaid it's hard to know..... ;-)

like whales and dolphins they can just hold their breath for a really long time, because their lungs are on the human half of their body they cant breath underwater
