Which dangerous fish breathes atmospheric air?

barracuda
stingray
electric eel
moray eel
Electric eel lives in muddy floodplains of Orinoco basin. It is well adapted to this low-oxygen environment: it can breathe atmospheric air using a vascularized respiratory organ in its oral cavity. In fact, electric eels must rise to the surface every 10 minutes and inhale, otherwise they die not having enough oxygen from the gill.
