Ok, another quirky question. I don´t know if it has been asked before here... What do you people think dinosaurs smelled like? I ask because I was in a crocodile preserve some time ago and I was surprised at how crocs don´t seem to have any kind of particular odour; amazing how any dog stinks much worst than a five meter long predator... What is the reason behind this? Why don´t crocodiles stink?

Do you think big theropods had a strong smell? And what about large herbivorous dinosaurs?

I know this kind of question is difficult to answer but I'd like to know your ideas...
