Why are aquatic animals breathe much faster than terrestrail animals?

Depends on oxygen saturation. Generally, the oxygen saturation in water is about 10% that of the oxygen saturation in air. But this varies on every part of the world. In LA the saturation is lower than what would be in other areas because of pollution. In areas that arent yet habited by fish may have a higher saturation than that of a body of water that is habited by fish.
