RABBIT TRACKS

each print about the size of a man's thumbprints

rabbit tracks

When rabbits travel, first their small front paws touch the ground, then the larger back feet travel over the paws still on the ground, and land in front of the planted front paws. Therefore, tracks of the front paws lie behind the tracks of the back paws.

The tracks at the top are produced by a rushing rabbit while those below, with the clusters of prints closer together and the front paws (the smaller tracks on the left in the cluster) are placed one above the other instead of together as at the top.
