Rabbits have 100 million receptors to help them smell odors and humans only have 5 or 6 million. 


A rabbit can identify you by your smell. 


Bunnies can smell when a strange animal or human comes into its territory. 


Rabbits twitch their noses from 20-120 times per minute to expose more sensory pads to detect smells. 

When a bunny is really relaxed their nose stops twitching.


Rabbits sniff each other when they meet to tell how old the other rabbit is, whether it is ready to mate and to see who is the top cat (rabbit that is).
