How many times have you been out in the woods, on the beach, or in the middle of snowy field and found a track that you don’t recognize? Animal tracks are the clearest sign that wildlife has been through an area, and is often the easiest way to identify a species without actually seeing it. A skilled tracker can even learn more from a set of prints—such as the animal’s behavior, movements, and even where it will ultimately end up.
