Sniffing Underwater

A ScienceFriday video podcast from over a year ago on how the star-nosed mole and other mammals can actually sniff for prey underwater.

I wonder if this is what my dog is doing and she sticks her nose to the base of the door and snorts as people approach.

    There’s a funny water creature in French Pyrenean ranges : Galemys pyrenaicus, (pyrenean desman) it’s got a trumpet nose and I wonder if the behavior is the same.
