About this book

Was that track on the trail left by a dog or a coyote? A caribou or a moose? A white-tailed deer or a peccary, perhaps? Was that pile of droppings deposited by a bobcat or a fox? Covering nearly 150 of the continent's most common or characteristic species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians north of Mexico, Scats and Tracks of North America helps you determine just what has passed your way and could still be nearby.

Look inside to find:
- Easy-reference descriptions with precise measurements and detailed illustrations of scats, tracks, and gait patterns
- An identification key and a glossary of tracking terms
- Thorough instructions for documenting your finds
- Rare species of particular interest, such as the jaguarondi and the polar bear
