    People might think I am weird, but snakes have this smell. I can't explain it, but there's no other smell like it. Kind of like horses. Nothing else smells like a horse, it's really unique.

    I like the smell of a snake, Its very subtle but its there.

    Anyone else?

    (I have had a rather large glass of port so. Forgive me if I'm being le creepy)

    Little/young snakes have a pleasant inoffensive smell... Whereas larger snakes STINK their enclosure and my whole house out!!! 3yo jungle pooped during the day while I was out and when I came home the smell nearly knocked me out! Bigger snake = bigger poop!!!

    Haha while the horse smell vs clean snake smell might be close in pleasantness, horse poo vs snake poo leaves no doubt whatsoever as to which one will clear a room first! Spent many years mucking out stables and never had an issue, but man my little Darwin is only 3 months old and yesterday's effort in the enclosure turned my stomach... It's getting worse as he is getting bigger!

    When we go hunting we often find bigger retics by the smell of the urine
    It would knock over a brown dog without even trying

    Seen some stinky fresh python sheds in my time.... But as Brownhash stated earlier, a regurge is possibly the worst smell relating to snakes I have experienced.

    I think blue tongues have a great smell. I have often smelt them in peoples backyards, and then found them within minutes.

    I also like the smell of a pythons uric acid deposits, and also a pythons shed skin (once it's dried out).
