Weekly Puzzler #133: The Better Nose

I thought it would be fun to do another post about an animal from Alaska–one that I got a chance to see and photograph.

Let’s look at the coastal brown bear or grizzly bear as it is sometimes called. Here’s a close up of its nose. Remember a while back when I did a post about the fabulous sense of smell in dogs? Well here’s a question. Who do you think has a better sense of smell–a bloodhound(DOG) or a brown bear?

A dog’s nose (this is not a bloodhound, but you get the idea!)

Check back next week to learn the answer…. and as always, don’t forget to use the comment box below to answer for your chance to qualify for the free giveaway on the first day of winter.

Have a great weekend! Hope you’re doing something interesting and getting to spend some time outside enjoying the lovely fall season.

    With a fifty-fifty chance….I will guess the blood hound.

    Interesting question, but I vote for the bear!

    My guess would be the bear.

    I’m going with the bear! I think their sense of smell is many times that of a bloodhound

    […] On last week’s puzzler, you had a 50-50 chance. Which way did you go? With the dog or the bear? Who has the better nose? […]
