With approx 200 million olfactory cells housed in the nose, a wolf's sense of smell is estimated to be 100x stronger than humans! A wolf's nose is also among the boopiest snoots in the animal kingdom!

Draft chapters and AMERS and paperwork etc. I hung on to my own PhD stuff for years. It had its own filing cabinet but eventually I only saved the final draft with my supervisors comments & some material that didn't get in. I still kept these even when it became it a book!
