Re: What animal tracks are these?

Since we are having some snow, I see the tracks again. This time I can distinctly see 4 prints, but they don't look much like the original ones.

The camera makes it a bit harder to make out the prints.

Those really look like raccoon. Like little hand prints. Opossum are more random, like the first set you pictured.

You likely have possums, raccoons, skunks, and possibly foxes in your neighborhood. So you'll probably see varying tracks.

I was going to say the same thing - it's very likely that both raccoons, possums, and more are around. I live in a city neighborhood and have seen raccoons (some people say they live in the storm drains and I have personally seen them go in and out of those), possums (had one in my garage !), and what surprises people the most, deer. The deer may have just been "traveling through" though. A neighbor called us one day and asked "why is there a deer in your front yard?" jokingly, but there was one. Multiple neighbors down the street were out looking too. There are some small woods around, i.e. parks, but my son said he's never seen tracks in them.

We have a wide range if critters here too. Including bobcats jaguarundi and other large cats.
