Do mermaids use lungs or gills to breathe?
Logan- I think they have both. When they come up out of the water they breathe with lungs and when they go back in the water they don’t have to hold their breath, they switch to gills.
Aubrey- Gills because they breathe underwater for a long time.
Jasper- Gills because I think they can breathe underwater for a very long time and only pop up for a little time.
Ava- Both because mermaids are half human and half mermaid.
Ellie- I think they kind of have both because its half mermaid and half human.
Camden- Both because they are under water and they also come up. They never have to hold their breath.
Cooper- I think they have gills because they can breathe underwater.
Hunter- Lungs because every once in a while they come up to breathe air.
Annabelle- Both because half of the side is gills and half of the side is lungs. When they come up they breathe with lungs and when they go down they blow bubbles with their gills.
Kailey- Both because they are half human and half mermaid.
Addy- Both because they are half human and half fish.
Connor- Both because mermaids breathe in water and their lungs to breathe on the bench.
Toron- I think gills because they swim a lot!
Haiden- Gills because they can breathe underwater.
Luke- Gills because they can breathe underwater and can stay under for a really long time.
Delaney- I think mermaids have lungs on the top and gills on the bottom because they are half human on the top and half fish on their tail.
