I think the track is much too large for either of those. This time of year I am betting the fox has a snowshoe kind of track from the extra fur between the toes.
Probably a coyote. Foxes prints are smaller and their back pad forms more of a v-shape.
No problem, glad to help.
Thanks also for fixing the entry. I am a bit new to this. :)
Thinking it is simply a dog...wolf would be nice, but they don't live in the region to my knowledge. It was taken near Beulah, Colorado. The pine needle next to it is from a ponderosa pine and is about 5-7 inches long.
Where did u find it (wooded area?) and what is the size?
It's a canid track, but most likely to be either a fox of coyote. Wolf is an interesting possibility, but it would be out of range for any wolf population of which I'm aware.
I think its a wolf!
Hello.That's a nice track. I'm moving this, as it is a sign of wildlife, i.e., a mammal sign. "Other" is shorthand for "other organisms", those that don't have their own PN category like lichens, worms, clams, snails, starfish (note the "other" icon) etc.
