Wild Boar Hoof Print in Melting Snow
This hoof print is of a Wild Boar Sus scrofa. Despite the print becoming unclear because of the melting snow, the two points made by the dew-claws at the rear, which are spaced wider than the front of the print, are clear. The overall size and broadness suggests a large male. Photo taken in Aragon, Spain, March 2014, by Gerard Gorman.
