This track appears to be put down overnight on a deco road I drive on to work.

@ Edward, yes tinker.

Above is actually orb weaver scat.


Wow. I guessed it! Seems I am more of an engineer than an osteologist!

Thinking out loud. Print at left of image, looks cloven probably pig, direction of travel (based on the one print axis, is different from the long disturbance, so I don’t think the pig was dragging anything) Indistict compression to right of lighter put down before the other two linear tracks , with the longest track put down last. I can see Shadow of reed or rushes or grass tree in the image, possibly straight enough to cause one arm of the “cross”, but if it did the it would have been lifted clean out of the dirt. I don’t think this is any kind of tail drag as the ground is soft and no prints that I can see either side of the line. The longer mark wobbles a little but is pretty constant for depth.
I’m saying 4 separate disturbances, one is pig. The linear ones....? Man made. Good one HM!

I'm not completely sure on the one I posted above. Im thinking some kind of invertabrate, millipede perhaps. You can see where it crossed over its own track.
