Good luck following a rabbit’s tracks in the snow! Because these mammals are prey for animals like cats, wolves, hawks and falcons, they’ve got to keep alert. And sometimes that means ducking for cover quickly! They might need to hide under a brush pile or take shelter under cedars to hide from predators, and so their tracks might be a little confusing. But there’s no mistaking rabbit tracks. The front paws leave tracks that are small, round and close together. The back paws leave tracks that are spread out a bit more.
