Animal Tracks - Mammal Tracks Mammals What is a Mammal? Mammals are animals that are born with fur or hair. Mammals produce live young which they nourish with milk. They are warm-blooded and have the most highly developed nervous system of all the animals. A mammal usually has four limbs and a four-chambered heart. The largest mammal is the blue whale at 100 feet in length. The smallest mammals are shrews, mice, and bats.
Many are less than two inches long, excluding the tail length. Click on the name of the animal below to see a picture of its tracks and some natural history information about it. I have also included some personal notes about each species. The species below are primarily those that can be found in northern California and the west. Some of them are found throughout the U. S. As I do more research, I will add species that are found in other areas.

Out of a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the recent blueness on the Florida sky, ran a little, tawny-haired boy. His bare toes, extending from his overalled legs, crackled towards the fallen palmettos. He leaped into the air, flinging his arms towards a flock of white doves circling previously mentioned him.
The jaguar had leaped on him from a low tree as he passed under it, as the boys learned afterward, and had crushed the man to earth by the weight of the spotted body more than by a stroke of the paw. Tell me, why this strong young colt, foaled in some peaceful valley of Vermont, far removed from all beasts of prey --why is it that upon the sunniest day, if you but shake a fresh buffalo robe behind him, so that he cannot even see it, but only smells its wild animal muskiness --why will he start, snort, and with bursting eyes paw the ground in phrensies of affright? But I had to have it; so I went down on my hands and knees, with one slipper on and the other in my hand, and began to paw gently around and rake the floor, but with no success.
Up- stairs the hall was dark, but I found the duke's room, and started to paw around it with my hands; but I recollected it wouldn't be much like the king to let anybody else take care of that money but his own self; so then I went to his room and begun to paw around there. When there was room on the ledge outside of the pots and boxes for a cat, the cat was there-- in sunny weather--stretched at full length, asleep and blissful, with her furry belly to the sun and a paw curved over her nose.
Edgar stood on the hearth weeping silently, and in the middle of the table sat a little dog, shaking its paw and yelping; which, from their mutual accusations, we understood they had nearly pulled in two between them. Fear thou not the Wolf-Brethren, soldier," gasped Dingaan, rolling his red eyes; "the paw of the Lion guards thee, my servant. About them frisking playd All Beasts of th' Earth, since wilde, and of all chase In Wood or Wilderness, Forrest or Den; Sporting the Lion rampd, and in his paw Dandl'd the Kid; Bears, Tygers, Ounces, Pards Gambold before them, th' unwieldy Elephant To make them mirth us'd all his might, & wreathd His Lithe Proboscis; close the Serpent sly Insinuating, wove with Gordian twine His breaded train, and of his fatal guile Gave proof unheeded; others on the grass Coucht, and now fild with pasture gazing sat, Or Bedward ruminating: for the Sun Declin'd was hasting now with prone carreer To th' Ocean Iles, and in th' ascending Scale Of Heav'n the Starrs that usher Evening rose: When SATAN still in gaze, as first he stood, Scarce thus at length faild speech recoverd sad.
Fine flat sand, never a cat's paw, trees all around of it, and flowers a-blowing like a garding on that old ship. I have good reason to believe, that he took me for a young one of his own species, by his often stroking my face very gently with his other paw. An enormous puppy was looking down at her with large round eyes, and feebly stretching out one paw, trying to touch her. They fed me behind bars from an iron pan till one night I felt that I was Bagheera--the Panther-- and no man's plaything, and I broke the silly lock with one blow of my paw and came away.
