How to Follow Animal Tracks: An Excerpt from On Track by Chris Stuart and Mathilde Stuart
Namibiana Buchdepot has shared an extract from On Track: Quick ID Guide to Southern and East African Animal Tracks by Chris Stuart and Mathilde Stuart.
On Track is a quick guide to identifying animal tracks. It is easily usable and exceptionally useful in the field.
In the excerpt, the authors give some basic information about identifying and following animal tracks with the help of the guide.
Read the excerpt:
First refer to the simplified track key (inside cover) and find the track that most closely fits the footprint you are trying to identify. This will direct you to the appropriate section in the book. It is always good to have an idea of what species occur in the area, as this helps to narrow down your choices.
