Kristine Tjøgersen - Spiracle
Kristine Tjøgersen: Spiracle
Spiracles are external openings for breathing found in some animal species, such as insects, spiders and some species of fish and whales. The function of spiracles is linked to respiration, helping oxygen to reach internal respiratory organs, such as lungs in whales and tracheae in insects. Whales and dolphins have a spiracle on the top of their head, from which they inhale and exhale air. These aquatic mammals have a muscular flap in their spiracle that controls their opening and closing, thus avoiding water entering the lungs.
