    What makes these tracks?
    Was at Lincoln beach in Oregon last summer and saw this, I have no idea what it could be? Strange because I always though that with toes you need a pad to support the foot in the back? Can you help me out here, all my research has yielded nothing!!

    If I remember correctly, about 1 and a half feet apart.

    Truly odd, but I don't know animal tracks. Just strikes me as a two-legged pattern.

    You know what? I think it is too! So what in the world? I don't know who to even to begin to ask. For months it has been in the back of my mind. Maybe I don't want to find out lol! Scary

    The even pattern, seems more two legged, but so hard to tell from photo.

    Without seeing more of the tracks, I am going to suggest a deer-type animal.

    What it looks like to me is the animal is 'single-tracking' meaning that as the animal trots it's hooves fall into a single line with the tracks overlapping. The 'middle' toe looks like an overlap of the left toe of one hoof and the right toe of another.

    It looks like it could be a deer with a messed up hoof. Are all the tracks exactly the same? Being a foot apart, it must be a small animal.

    Very deer track looking. The 3"toes" is a bit confusing though, may be a congenital issue or injury.
