Habitat where these tracks were made - A marsh outlet stream in central Connecticut

 
Photo P2

From this photo, it appears a small animal has crossed the stream and left us some tracks on the two sandbars.

 
Photos P3 & P4 are zoomed in on the two trails across the two sandbars, respectively. The animal’s stride measures 4 to 5", and its trail width measures 5".

Photos P5 – P7 are closeups of the footprints. Note that this animal has a large difference in size in its feet – the large foot measures 2 1/8" wide by 1" long; the small foot measures 1" wide by 1" long. Go back to Photos P3, P4 & P6 and note – very interesting – there is a "vertical line" drag mark that goes along the centerline of the trail – this measures 3/8" wide.
