The smells for survival

Olorama Digital Scent Technology

Smelly animals

Many animals born with an unpleasant smell… The reasons are multiple, including defense or simply due to their habits… Probably they don’t worry much about their bad smell but, doubtless, when we see them, we prefer to remain far from them… Let’s see which smelly animals we can find on wild life and the reasons for their bad smell…

COWS

Despite this animal is one of the biggest food source for humans, they are really smelly… A cow can produce big amounts of methane (among 250 and 500 liters per day)… Despite they have an excellent sense of smell, seems that they don’t feel specially uncomfortable with their own smell, and even with humans smell…

TASMANIA DEVIL

Under threat, which includes presence of humans or other animals, this animal deliver a very nasty smell. They are mainly solitary animals, which makes they spread bad smell very often if they are disturbed…

WOLVERINE

When they don’t stop feeding, they spray a nasty smell on their food and bury it to feed later… This protects their food, and help them to find it later… This smell is used also for territory purposes…

BOMBARDIER BEETLE

Again, under threat, the bombardier beetle release a smelly gas, which makes a very recognizable noise… They can make this 29 times and the amount of gas released overcomes 4 time its own weight… The gas is composed by hydroquinone and oxygen peroxide, and it’s really efficient to repel predators…

SKUNK

This is the most famous smelly animal… Under threat or perturbation, these animals release sulfuric liquids which guarantees a fast isolation… They use this for survival purposes (not for attacking or similar…) 

GREEN STINK BUG

One of the most smelly animals… If you find one of them in your home, our recommendation is you get rid of it at the soonest…! The bad smell is not only for survival purposes, but also for attracting other bugs… The substance is produced in the thorax, between the legs…

Despite that, at Olorama we don’t trust much on bad smells (see this article for more info), we count with more than 200 different smells (and growing), which can be released via software through or Compact Scent Devices
