Use our handy chart to identify animal tracks you see in the snow when you’re out on your next nature walk.

Perhaps those tracks you saw while snowshoeing yesterday actually belonged to a moose, a wolf, or a bear. You never know who else might be in the woods.

 

Use our handy chart to identify animal tracks you see in the snow when you’re out on your next nature walk.
