On the rbp's I noticed that they have like a flared nose um sort of like a half shield or something. why do they have this, is it to protect their noses or highten their sense of smell?

I think it's used to maximize the water flow into their nose, to pick up the maximum amount of useful information - wheter wounded/bleeding prey animals are around....
