I would guess Racoon, as Possums tend to put their feet together when pausing and then they sit back on their haunches. If they are the same as our Possums.
and me I wouldn't know a possum's foot from a racoon's but like the photo for zany, why are they so white?
like Lynn I wouldn't know one from the other...and I wanna know why they are white too
Hi Val,Looks like a Raccoon. They have long and slender toes. I'm with the rest, why are they white. Have a great day!Sherrie
I don't know who's feet they are, but they are awful cute! If there were bigger I would have guessed Big Foot! :)
The footprints were actually kind of tan, from the dirt on the shoulder (we don't have sidewalks in our neighborhood). I just had my little purse-cam with me and perhaps they are a touch overexposed?
The raccoon said the squirrel made the muddy footprints . . . but I wouldn't believe anyone wearing a mask.
Love the mystery left behind here!
It's a zany conversation, that's for sure. LOL! Fun pic.Kimhttp://kandrew2012.wordpress.com/
Having grown up in NYC, I certainly wouldn't trust my opinion, but I'm thinking raccoon (based on a vague memory of animal footprints in a Girl Scout handbook). But what was it walking in--paint?
Either way (I can't say) but I know both are present when you least expect them. I saw a mother racoon and children walking down the sidewalk in an urban development. We had opossums under our house with a nest of babies in that same neighborhood.
I like that the paw prints are so bright, like a cop show dusting for evidence. I feel like I should know what critter know but don't. Raccoon's front and back feet are quite different from each other.
What do you think?
