Moments of Bushcrafting...

Fire at the shelter

Tracks in the pond. Guess who?



  1. Hard to tell what the tracks are without something for scale.
    Something that doesn't mind water but without webbed feet and not swimming. It is five toed so probably not the fastest of creatures. There seem to be different lengths of front and rear prints but that may just be wishful thinking on my part.
    I can't see any particular claw marks either.
    My guess is a raccoon or something similar. Am I close?

  2. Well I would like to say that it was Mungo during his last visit, (He did keep asking if he had to wear shoes) but I think Sam is right about it being a raccoon. We did have a porcupine and a skunk around but truth be told, I would have to look it up to know for sure. My guess is raccoon.

    Thanks, Decado.
