In many ways, smell is a strange sense. The very act of sniffing – pulling air and odor molecules into our noses – changes what remains behind in a way that sight and sound do not.

From special scent organs to their experimental protocols, dogs are well-adapted to reading the world by smell. (Image and video credit: Deep Look)
