I don't know of a single reptile that can breathe underwater, nor do I see gills.

If it had a better oxygen reserve, okay. But a reptile breathing underwater is silly.

It's better to read my posts in the voice of GLaDOS. It makes things so much more simpler.

Argument rendered invalid due to the fact that it's a fictional fantasy game set in an entirely different universe.

And they have gills.

Argonians are meant to be a borderline lizard/fish hybrid, aren't they?

Also, from a quick google trip, I found this:

Some reptiles like the crocodiles, have developed ways of breathing to get around total dependence upon the lungs. Since most reptiles do not have a secondary palate, they are forced to hold their breath while swallowing. It has been found, however, that a secondary palate has evolved in the crocodiles which allows them to breathe while underwater or snaking on their prey.

It's an extended air supply, not breathing underwater. Crocs can stay underwater for roughly 2 hours at max. Though I do appreciate your honest debate/discussion aside from the other "loljuzagame" or "umad?"

I do stand corrected. I did read up on argonians and they do in fact have gills on their necks. I just never noticed and they have always been called reptiles, not some reptile/fish hybrid.
