Quote from: overthere on Nov 06, 2021, 04:24:09 PMI always thought in that scene where Dutch is hugging a tree and the Predator is right behind him that he should be able to smell him.All that dripping and slime on them, mouth full of spit etc, that's bound to smell foul, right?I bet Predators have a distinctive smell about them. Do the comics ever mention that?Likewise, do Predators have a sense of smell? Jungle Hunter should have been able to smell Dutch. Days without a shower in the jungle? You don't need infrared to spot him.

Quote from: SuperiorIronman on Nov 07, 2021, 02:34:51 AMI would argue.., probably. Predator 2 kind of addresses this with how the OWLF tracked City Hunter. And really they'd probably stink from collected skulls since we've seen them still bloody or meaty while on their person which can't smell good especially since they operate in hot environments generally. Just a mixture of dead bodies and the Predator's own body odor. McKenna in The Predator is also taken aback when he smells some of Fugitive's blood so there's also the possibility the blood might also smell.I'd imagine they would have a sense of smell but given they'd be dealing with dead bodies all the time I doubt foul smells are a big deal. It's probably weirder for them to notice something smelling good. Man could you imagine how weirded out a Predator would be if it walked into a bakery?
Quote from: [cancerblack] on Nov 07, 2021, 03:35:23 AMGiven the lack of a nose, and the rarely-sighted snakelike tongue, I'd guess no sense of smell but a highly perceptive ability to taste the air.
Quote from: SuperiorIronman on Nov 07, 2021, 02:48:58 PMI just remembered the skill has a weird notch in it. I remember some debate about whether they had nostrils as a result of the skull. So maybe they have it but just not in a place you can immediately see? It's not present on the Super Predator skull however. Though given they are built different that might be a trait they lack if they did have nostrils.
