I have been asked over the years about which animal tracks belong to which animal. Recently kickboxingmom wrote about whether some tracks they observed on a visit to our area were bear or possibly mountain lion. Many times you do not see the animal but the tracks will remain where they have passed for several days. The track above is a bear track.
The one on the bottom is a mountain lion track. Bears have 5 toes and lions have 4 toes. The heel part of the track is distinguishable in both. Both are very large in size and the bobcat track is similar to the lion but much smaller.
