MyNature Animal Tracks
You’ve been there before, fishing a sandy riverbank, hiking over a lush green forest trail, gliding through a fresh snow fall on a clear crisp winter morning then, there in front of you a set of tracks. You wonder which way their heading, what animal was it, was it just here. Is it a canine or feline, maybe it's a bear.
