;What other use for such a sensitive nose? Maybe to track prey?
;Like snakes, or any number of other predators.
Maybe "scent organ" was meant above, and possibly I'm nitpicking but....
Snakes do not have "noses" per se, they have nasal openings, but the
olfactory organ is in their tongue. It is called a Jacobsen's (sp?) organ,
and can sense taste, smell and temperature. Some large cats have this organ
(Felis concolor, the mountain lion) also.
