    Default Any track experts?

    Found this track while I was out shed hunting, thinking it might be a mink?

    Coon tracks

    Mink tracks
    http://www.cityofmelrose.org/departm...cks/tracks.jpg

    the trail was like that of a mink/fisher. Pairs of two almost side by side, about 8" to 10" between the sets.

    First I thought it might be a house cat but as I looked at it there are 5 toes, and the trail isn't right for a cat.

    When compared with the mink prints in that link, you might have a match?

    my first thought when i heard there was an unidentified print was one of hopefullness. upon the realization that the prints in question were not that of an ex wife or two was of a racoon. then maybe again its a mink... or a mink impersonating a racoon...

    ...(talking to myself)...check the date of the thread............................... OK Then, definately weasle family if they're side-by-each. Otter and fisher tracks are as big or bigger that a coyote. I'd say mink too.

    It's a mink. Toes are two close together. And not a large enough pad to be a river otter. Tracks look very similiar to a Marten, but thanks to the car key next to the track.... definitely Mink.
