I love to look for signs of animals in the woods. It is very easy to do when there has been a snowfall. I found these Gray Squirrel tracks at the UT Arboretum after a rare snowfall. It is interesting to see the patterns of the footprints. Squirrels and rabbits move in a "galloping" pattern where the hind feet land in front of the front feet as they move. Note the larger hind feet to the left. Like many rodents, squirrels have 4 toes on the front feet and 5 toes on the hind feet.
