Stoat tracks 1 500x500

Stoat footprints.

Average size: forefeet 20 mm long by 22 mm wide; hind feet 42 mm long by 25 mm wide. Stoat footprints can be mistaken for rat footprints. However, if you draw a line between the first toe (A in the picture) and fourth toe (B in the picture), the line will cross in front of the central footpad if it is a stoat.
