Mountain Lion Track



<---Mountain Lion track.

This mountain lion track picture was taken at the water tank (pond) when
I placed the cache. Keep in mind that tracks in mud are often
distorted.



<---What animal made this track?

DO NOT post your answer.

E-mail me your guess and the characteristics of the track; then
I'll let you know if you are correct.

Mountain Lion Stencil

 


<---There is a stencil in the cache that
you can use to trace on paper and take.  Please excuse the
rough stencil.  Please do not take the
stencil.




There is a 7th cache called Wildlife Linkages Tracking Challenge.
Don’t forget to get the number in each animal cache under the top cover
