Beavers leave unusual tracks. I found these in the soft mud of a intermittent stream bed.

The website Northern Bushcraft has this to say about Beaver tracks and sign:

  • hind tracks are 6-7 inches long, front tracks are 2-3 inches long.
  • hind print show five toes, front print show four or five toes.
  • hind foot has webbing between toes.
  • claw marks show in the tracks.
  • tracks can be marred from tail dragging over them.
  • beavers live in dome-shaped lodges with underwater entrances.
  • beavers eat cattail shoots, aquatic vegetation and tree bark.
