I'd be terrified. smile
Well taken and composed, Ms. B.
Beverly Andrighetti: Haha, whatever it was, vz, I can't imagine anything too terrifying living in our built-up suburban neighbourhood. Thank you very much for your nice comment.
Sea turtle... definitely sea turtle. smile
Beverly Andrighetti: They do resemble turtle tracks, Elizabeth, and if they were in sand and not snow, I would say that you were bang on.

Poor thing - I hope it had a nice thick coat whatever it was!
Beverly Andrighetti: I'm sure it was well clothed to be out and about, Chris, as we all are in this frigid Canadian weather.

It seems to have a trailing wingspan or a dangling coat, Beverly. grin Don't you just love pristine snowfall!
Beverly Andrighetti: That dangling coat or trailing wingspan is what has me baffled, Ginnie. The snow in our garden stays like that pretty much until the Spring melt.

Can you make a guess as to what it could be, Beverly
Beverly Andrighetti: We've had many animal tracks in our garden before, Lisl, but none looking like this. I'm stumped.

I cannot identify anything positively except rabbits.
Beverly Andrighetti: That was my guess at first, Mary, but the prints seem to be close together and appear to be more like walking than hopping. It could be the bunny was tired, though, and didn't feel much like hopping.

I think its a Python Beverly.
Beverly Andrighetti: Haha, it certainly looks like one slithering through the snow, Chad, although I've yet to spot one in this neck of the woods.
A beautiful shot, Beverly and I like the unknown quality, allowing imagination to explore smile
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, we may never know what creature left their mark in the snow, Martin.
Looks like something slightly off-track went on in the foreground whatever the animal that made them.
Beverly Andrighetti: That might be the snow that was thrown there when my husband shoveled the little path that runs along the back of the house, Brian. Whatever made the tracks seems to have walked the path and then started across the snow from that point.
wow... now I ma going to play detective... probably a fox.. but a fine capture
Beverly Andrighetti: That would be a first for us, Ronky; although fox have been spotted in several of our suburban neighbourhoods.

a fascinating image!
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you, Philine. I'm really curious as to what animal made them, even if it turns out to be just a common house pet.
This seems to be a large animal Beverly. Exceptional capture!
Beverly Andrighetti: I would think so, Richard, but I'm still baffled as to which one. Many thanks.
