A big yaaaaawn from Prince Chaka...

The tigers sense of smell is one of the few that does not contribute to its success in terms of hunting. In fact, it is used sparingly and rarely in hunting, and is favoured as part of the personal interactions of these wild cats.
Still, this sense is relatively well developed, although the tiger has a small olfactory region in its brain (the part of the brain that processes smell stimuli) and fewer smell-detecting cells in their noses than animals that rely heavily on their sense of smell for hunting and, indeed, survival.
