    I have to agree with Deaf Buhda on this one. There is precedent that breath weapons are physiological–at least in dragons. Per the 3e Draconomicon, “In addition to being the organs for respiration, a dragon’s breath weapon is generated in its lungs from secretions produced by the draconis fundamentum.” Considering that dragonborn have dragon ancestry, it would make sense that a dragonborn’s ability to breath fire is physiologically based as well, despite 5e’s lack of clarity in RAW. As always, though, it’s up to the DM to allow a breath weapon in Wild Shaped forms.
