Tracks!

1 post in this topic

I don't know about many of you, but I enjoy looking for clues that an animal has been nearby especially if I'm out on a walk through the woods or along a hiking trail. Most wildlife will use paths we create as their own personal highways and you can see and find out a lot by just looking down sometimes. I like to see if I can figure out what is out and about or who could possibly be around still. All animals make a track. So lets see your track photos!

 

Young Deer. Most likely a  Florida Key Deer (Odocoileus virginianus clavium) an endangered subspecies of white-tailed deer (O. virginianus) only found in Florida.

Turkey Vulture (Cathartes aura)

Bobcat (Lynx rufus)

Raccoon (Procyon lotor)

Possibly a Coyote (Canis latrans) but due to the size I suspect it may be a domestic dog that someone took with them (even though they are not permitted).

Horse. There are wild horses in Florida, but not where I was. This was just someone riding the trails from earlier in the morning as my group walked past them for the whole 7 miles (11 km).

Happy Tracking. :)
