Do tarantulas have noses?

how do they smell stuff? with hair sensors on their body or something?

I think tarantulas don't smell at all, I think they only sense vibrations with the hairs on their legs. Someone correct me if I'm mistaken.

They have VERY sensitve open-ended chemo-sensory hairs on their legs and palps. Far more effective 'smelling' then we have. They can detect moisture content of the soil, and much more.

So they 'smell' yes, with their legs. :)

Just imagine that everything you touched, you smell-licked it. Like this guy, but also noses
