A lovely shot of a typical Fox track pattern.
Nice close up showing the size against a tape measure.
Slightly deeper snow this is evident by the slight dragging marks where the Fox has made contact with the snow surface while lifting its legs.
Another close up from a different angle you can make out the nail marks which are just one difference between a domestic dog and a fox. A dogs nails are so worn due to walking on the hard surfaces where as a Foxes rarely wear to this degree which make them prominent in a track.
Another nice close up showing a distinct pad pattern.
These tracks are made by a rodent most people dont like
Another shot of rat tracks. You can make out the drag mark which is caused by the tail.
Here is a very good example of a rat hind print in mud showing the 5 toes, 3 central toes bunched and equally spaced.
