my guess would be that they can sense it, but dont necessarily know what it is. our bodies release different chemicals when we are afraid, and they should be able to smell that. dogs know we are afraid partially because of their own sense of smell. however, i dont think a snake has the mental capacity to draw any conclusions from this change in our body chemistry.
