Sense of Smell


The red squirrel have a sense of smell,

that's millions of times better

than us simple humans.

In comparison,

it would be like if we only saw

in black and white, while they saw in

full color, including uv and ultraviolet.

Our sense of smell pale in comparison.

So even though it might look like

they are searching for food all the time,

they might not even be hungry.

They're simply "reading" the entire

environment around them, by smell.

From a single straw of grass,

they can tell what kind of animal

that has been there and if it was a squirrel,

they can tell exactly who, has been there,

if they're sick and what they had for dinner.

From a single drop of rain or a snowflake,

they can smell the air quality

from thousands of miles away

cause the wind carried it here.

Imagine if you could smell the morning air,

in the Siberian mountains,

simply by smelling the rain.
