ANIMALS & their TRACKS

with photos by Teddy Miller


Tracks are like clues to a great puzzle. They teach us who’s around and give insights into how animals move across the land. If you’re excited about wildlife and learning how to track them, this digital book is just for you. Take a flip through and brush up on your tracking knowledge before your next hike.


Black-tailed deer

3.5 in x 2.5 in

Because of their sharp edges, you’ll see these tracks everywhere.


Bobcat

2 in x 2 in

No claw marks? It’s probably a bobcat because their claws are retracktable


Brush Rabbit

Hind: 2 in x .5 in

These tracks can be hard to see due to the hair on the bottom of their feet


Coyote

These tracks are smaller than you might think. Even smaller than most dog tracks


Great Blue Heron

7 in x 5 in

These tracks show three toes facing forward and one back


Ground Squirrel

Front: 2.5in x 1.5 in

These little tracks show four toes on the front foot and five on the back


Wild Turkey
