Synopses & Reviews
Winner of the 1999 National Outdoor Books Award! See those animal signs on the trail? Was that footprint left by a fox or a wolf? Was that pile of droppings deposited by a moose, a mouse, or a marten? Scats and Tracks of the Rocky Mountains will help you determine which mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians have passed your way and could still be nearby. Clearly written descriptions and illustrations of scats, tracks, and gait patterns will help you recognize seventy Rocky Mountain species. An identification key, a glossary of tracking terms, and detailed instructions on how to document your finds are also included here. Easy-to-use scat and track measurements appear on each page, making this book especially field friendly and letting you know if a white tailed ptarmigan, a red fox, or even a black bear has been your way. (4 1/4 X 7, 176 pages, illustrations)
This revised and updated edition features the tracks, scats, and signs of 70 different species in the Rocky Mountains. Superb illustrations by Todd Telander make identifications easy.
