Description

Picture perfect tracks of the Tiger Whiptail, great basin subspecies. Like all whiptails, feet tend to point perpendicular to the midline of the trail. Toes 1-3 are together. Toe 4 is very long, and often makes a "J" or hook. Toe 5 is small and on a separate plain. Tail drag straight and narrow.

Description

This pretty coyote was roaming around Kelso Depot (Mojave National Preserve).
He came quickly to my car and then waited, just as if he was expecting me to give him food. He's probably used to tourists feeding him :-(
