BEAR TRACKER'S ANIMAL TRACKS DEN
The original online field guide to tracks and tracking - since 1997.
Celebrating our 12th Anniversary!
My name is Beartracker (AKA Kim A. Cabrera). I invite you to explore the world of tracking with me. I am interested in both animal and SAR (Search and Rescue) tracking. When you explore this site, you will find information on animals and their tracks. I have also included links to my favorite tracking sites. As you follow the links below, you will find pictures of animal tracks and drawings. In addition to animal tracks, you will find pictures of the animals themselves and natural history information for each species. If you know how to identify animal tracks, you can tell who has visited the location. If you know about the habits of the animal, you will understand why it visited that place.

QUICK REFERENCE ANIMAL TRACK GUIDE
Print this guide and take it with you when you go hiking.
It gives you a quick reference to some common tracks.
To find out more about each animal, click on its track.
any reference books contain sketches of animal tracks, but tracks in the field rarely look like those found in texts. Dust can make an animal track look one way, sand or mud another. An unrushed animals has one way of walking. The autograph its feet leave when in a hurry is quite different.
This field guide takes all of these differences into account. It originally was created to aid department biologists with yearly surveys along Missouri streams to determine furbearer populations. This set of pictures of animal tracks--or autographs--are drawn to the size of average adults. Young animals' tracks are slightly smaller.
The solid lines represent those parts of a track which usually are evident. Dotted lines indicate parts which don't show under normal conditions. They are truly animal autographs.
