(i) Although the dolphins possess lungs, they breathe through their blowholes. Powerful muscles form a special plug within the blowhole which prevents water from entering the lungs when the dolphin is underwater. Dolphins have to rise to the surface of water frequently to breathe. When they are underwater, they hold their breath; when they are out of breath, they return to the surface to take in more fresh air.
(ii) No, snails do not possess lungs. They respire through their skin.
