The Nose Knows (Rabbits)

While rabbits have very good hearing (obvious with their very large ears), they also have a well-developed sense of smell. Their sense of smell is far better than that of humans.
However, one very noticeable difference from a dog's nose (see previous post) is that a rabbit's nose is covered by fur.  Here is the nose of rabbit model, Paisley! 

FUN FACT: Did you know that when rabbits are asleep, their noses stop twitching?
