Is it a dog or a coyote footprint?

SCATS AND TRACKS OF THE MID-ATLANTIC, A Field Guide To The Signs Of 70 Wildlife Species by James C Halfpenny and Jim Bruchac

Great field guide for camping!
Is it a dog or a coyote? Isn't this the question every kid wants to know when they see tracks in the woods? Super illustrations in this book help to decipher what it is you are seeing. This is a great summer camp, or family camping trip field guide, or just pack up the family and go for a picnic in these mountains and see what tracks and scat you can find!

We recommend Virginia State Parks for day tripping, many have interpretive centers and ranger or master naturalist led learning activities so get outside and have fun!
