Can snakes smell?


Snake using it’s tongue to taste the air
Yes, but they do so in a manner different than most other animals. Each time their tongue flicks out they are collecting tiny particles on it. When the tongue goes back inside their mouth they put those particles in an organ called the Jacobson's organ or the Vomeronasal organ. All animals have this, including humans but aside from some species of deer and lions the only ones that really use it are reptiles.
