Animal Tracks

Hey kids! There are a lot of really cool animals walking around Katmai National Park. Let’s see if you can guess what some of them are by their tracks. Click on the link below each picture to see if you’re right.

 
A large track with claws set in wet ash
Track #1
 

What animal made this track? As you can see, my print is not very small, but has very long claws. You might find me by the river catching salmon or up in the mountains browsing on berries.

 
Large dog-like tracks
Track #2
 

What animal made this track? My print looks a lot like a dog’s, right? I’m a carnivore who might be seen alone or in a pack.

 
Small tracks with claw marks
Track #3
 

What animal made this track? My print can be confused with other four-legged creatures but I’m not very big. I do have a big bushy tail though, and am known for being curious…and sly.

 
hand-like tracks on wet sand
Track #4
 
What animal made this track? I spend most of my time in the water so seeing my prints is special. When I am in the water, I spend most of my time on my back and will sometimes link up with others of my kind to form a ‘raft.’
 
Medium hooved tracks in sand
Track #5
 

What animal made this track? My track has a split hoof, which tells you that I am related to deer. My hooves help me stay on top of the snow when I’m travelling long distances in the winter.

 
Clawed tracks in snow
Track #6
 

What animal made this track? If you see my track, you’re in luck! I’m very rarely seen and biologists still have a lot to learn about me!
