Beagles have 45 times more scent receptors than humans.

All of a beagle's scent membranes would unfold to 60 sq. in. The same in a human would only be 1 sq. inch—That's like comparing a piece of paper to a stamp.

A beagle's sense of smell is 1,000 - 10,000 times greater than a human's.

“A dog can never tell you what she knows from the
smells of the world, but you know, watching her,
that you know
almost nothing.”
― Mary Oliver, Dog Songs
