Cot­ton­tail Rab­bit

Wild - - PROJECT -

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.
