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. :)

Very nice collection. I see baboon and gazelle in the first. A bird but no sense of scale in the second. A smallish cat in the third unless that's a very big vehicle tyre. The fourth is too windblown for me and no scale but looks catlike. The last one looks like baboon on the left and maybe hyena in the middle. Used to be better at this but my long period of convalescence has taken the edge off my skill (not much of an excuse :rolleyes:).
