It's An Argument That I Will Never Get Tired of Discussing. Can You Smell Snakes?
After arguing with several people concerning snakes' smelling I decided to call a local herpetologist, Steve, from Steve’s Snaketuary. The mission at Steve's Snaketuary is to educate and help with the safe removal, relocation, and rehoming of snakes. Steve is a wealth of knowledge.
Steve set the record straight, he claims that snakes give off a smell that he described as "musky". Why do snakes do this? To warn us of course. Although I personally have never smelled a snake, I have to take the expert's word for it. Some people claim that snakes smell like cucumbers and watermelon, but our snake expert friend claims he has only ever smelled them as "musky" but to other people, they may feel like it's more of a cucumber smell.
Venomous Snakes Like Copperheads and Rattlesnakes Emit the Smell of Cucumbers.
When snakes get scared they let off this odor as a warning. Several experts claim that snake dens give off a cucumber smell as well. This is what my nightmares are made of, walking into my garage or storage and it becoming a snake den overnight.
