Most mammals mate, seek food and raise young with the sense of scent. We
use primarily our vision and our brains to do these things, a lot like
birds. What is the evolutionary journey that led us to this pecurliarity?
When, say, a cat chooses a mate, it does so by scent. What causes it to
make this decision between all the possible suitors? Why don't we do it?
