Possible Paw Track?

Recommended Posts

BLT

I’m hoping someone can tell me if this is a paw track of some sort? There are three indentations on this rock of very similar shape and size. (four inches wide) Or would it have been impossible for this type of rock to have had any tyoe of tracks? The rock was in my barn in middle Tennessee. Thanks.

It is sometimes really difficult to tell if you really have a track.  Typically if an area has tracks you find a good number of them not just one.  We find bog iron tracks from the Pleistocene of Virginia.  Below is one of the more recognizable paw prints (juvenile coyote print) that I've found.

Thanks, @MarcoSr! Since I joined TFF a few weeks ago, I’ve spent several hours reading through various posts/threads. For some reason, I find coprolites and paw tracks especially fascinating. :)

I also like tracks and coprolites.  I'm lucky that I can look for Pleistocene or Cretaceous tracks or Eocene marine coprolites at sites within a short drive from my house in Virginia.
