Rabbit (European)

Rabbit tracks 1 499x500

Rabbit paw prints (front and hind).

Rabbits have paws with very sharp claws, but without foot or toe pads. The length of the hindfoot ranges from 75-95 mm, but not all of the hindfoot may show up in a print (as in the above image).  A rabbit in a hurry may only use the tips of the hindfeet, and on a hard surface the furry parts of the feet may not show up either.  Thus, hindfoot prints can be 50-95 mm long and 25 mm wide, while forefoot prints are about 40 mm long by 25 mm wide.
