《中英對照讀新聞》These Deep-Sea Weirdos Hold Their Breath for Minutes at a Time 這些深海怪胎一次憋氣好幾分鐘
No wonder this fish looks like a grumpy, inflated balloon — it’s been holding onto a mouthful of water for ages.
This odd little creature is known as the coffinfish （Chaunax endeavouri）, and it lives in the deepest parts of the Pacific ocean. Researchers observed this "breath-holding" behavior for the first time while combing through publicly available videos captured by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s （NOAA） remotely operated vehicles, Science reported.
To get the necessary oxygen to survive, fish gulp down water, extract oxygen and then "exhale" the oxygen-depleted water by releasing it from their gills, Science reported. But these fish held onto that water in their large gill chambers for quite a long time, from 26 seconds up to 4 minutes, rather than releasing it immediately.
