Guide, Scats and Tracks of the Rocky Mountains: A Field Guide to the Signs of Seventy Wildlife Species –James C. Halfpenny, Ph.D; illustrated by Todd Telander


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? This handy-sized field guide will help you determine which mammals, birds reptiles and amphibians have passed your way and might still be nearby. Clearly written descriptions and illustrations of scat, tracks and gait patterns will help you recognize seventy Rocky Mountain species. An identification key, a glossary of tracking terms, and detailed instructions about how to document your findings also are included. 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.
