Raccoon tracks

Procyon lotor


Raccoon tracks are hand-shaped with a diameter that measures 2 to 3 inches across. They register five finger-like toes in both front and hind feet and also often register small claws. Their tracks are asymmetrical. The innermost toe is smallest and further towards the rear of the foot than the other toes, which allows left and right tracks to be differentiated. Their foot pad is roughly C-shaped. Front tracks have longer toes that are more spread apart. Hind feet often register a larger palm and heel pad.


Muddy edge of Lewisville Lake.
