Hoof Print of Roe Deer

This photo shows an interesting hoof print. It was made by a Roe Deer Capreolus capreolus and taken in the UK in November 2009 (by the carcass shown in the previous post). Because it is in wet mud and fresh, the print is splayed and far from classic. For example, the dew claws at the rear (bottom of photo) have made impressions. This does not always happen with Roe Deer. But note the very narrow, pointed shape of the cleaves.
