    Since they are mammals, whales have lungs, not gills. They must come to the ocean surface to breathe through nostrils known as blowholes.

    I find it hard to believe that one of the whales at Sea World actually allowed you to manipulate its blow hole in that manner.

    Same thing your nose is for. Whales are mamals not fish, and breath air.

    They need oxygen just like us. Hold your breath and youll blow out of your hole. They can hold their breath longer because of a difference in hemoglobin.

    Well, it is called a 'blow hole', what did they expect?

    It's how they breathe, whales are mammals and do not have gills.
