WildTrack has recorded prints in almost every kind of substrate you can imagine – sand, snow, mud, gravel, charcoal etc) but yesterday we received something completely new! Every year in North Carolina, the pine trees shed a huge load of pollen. For a few days each Spring all outdoor surfaces (and sometimes indoors too) are covered with a fine layer of yellow pollen dust. A friend recently captured this wonderful image of racoon prints in the pollen dust on a sidewalk . Racoon front feet (in the right of the image) have a characteristic ‘human hand’ shape.
