When you’re out and about, keep this convenient track guide by Jonathan Poppele close at hand. Designed for ease of use, the tabbed booklet is organized by track group for quick identification. Narrow your choices by group, and view just a few animal tracks at a time. The detailed illustrations cover more than 70 species of mammals – plus major groups of birds, reptiles, and amphibians – found in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and East Texas.
The illustrations are carefully drawn to resemble the track prints as you might see them in the field. Plus, size information, sample gait patterns, and a step-by-step guide to track identification help to ensure positive ID. The pocket-sized format is much easier to use than laminated foldouts, and the tear-resistant pages help to make the booklet durable. So bring this lightweight quick guide along on your next hike, camping trip, or walk to the park, and improve your tracking skills with every animal track sighting.
