Makin' Tracks

Photo by Marty Horowitz 1/13/2016

On Wednesday's (alas still Ned-less) Nature Walk, Marty led the group to multiple mountain lion tracks in the sand by the dam. Even though some had been trampled by human boots, there were still many to see. We think there were multiple lions, as some of the tracks were smaller than the photo above. You'll note the lack of toenail indentations. Cats (mountain lions, bobcats) can pull their nails back; dogs (coyotes, foxes) cannot.

Be watchful out there. Mountain lions are very large carnivores. They don't mess around OR listen to reason!
