I thought I’d get a jump on the season to see who is tresspassing.Animal Tracks

Can you identify the animal(s) who made these tracks?

Hi all,

I’m sorry but since then, it’s rained and snowed and the track marks are gone for now. I buy the bit about foxes because I’ve seen them. I also know we have at least one coyote back there. Again, I saw the creature. It’s the hoof-like tracks that’s got me wondering. You know, that picture should have got larger if you clicked on it. but I just tried it and it didn’t change. I have it at 1024×648 so it should have been much larger. OK I’ll try something else.

I was wondering about that. I heard there are deer around but have never seen one.

Does anyone know how to make the picture show up larger?

it’s a photobucket image? If it is uploaded in a large format then you should be able to post it in the large file size. If it has already been resized then it has probably saved in this smaller format and you’d have to re-upload

I resized it by clicking the size thing in the bottom right of my screen.I just clicked and made it to 200% and now they look like deer tracks.

They look like goat tracks to me. If you don’t have goats, my next guess would be deer. : )

Oh boy. Deer tracks, rabbits, god knows what else. Anybody got any ideas on how to keep critters out of their garden? Last year something shredded my corn. I almost cried. Then, they went after my tomatoes.

Photobucket resized my picture. Of all the nerve. You know what? I have a free account so they are all web-size images. I won’t pay for the service, period. tracks

So, I uploaded it to Flickr and got a better picture, don’t you think?

Yeah, what’s that? A one-legged bird? You know, I’ve never seen a rabbit around here. Are they nocturnal?

yes, rabbits are busy at night.
Foxes walk by putting one foot in front of the other and leave a single line. But don’t know if that is a fox track.

I am thinking Javelina tracks. Do you have those in your area. Maybe to far apart for them. Maybe the Abominable Snowman. A Fox following a Deer that is following a Javelina that is following a Rabbit. LOL Looks like you have your own little farm either way. I use chicken wire to keep the hungry critters out of my garden.
