My top key is 2 inches long.
Saw a single raccoon on frozen/snow covered part of a cattail pond surrounded by gray-alder trees.
Four days old, hit in hind.
raccoon or nutria?
Set of fore and hind tracks.
This fellow was likely returning from a night's hunting when I saw him about 9 am on the trail ahead of me. I followed him for a while, until the animal turned uphill, probably to a den.
Skeleton found inside what I believe may be a Beaver's den. Burrow was exposed as the water in an adjacent pond dried up.
