Identifying Mammals by Their Tracks, Skulls, and Other Signs

2nd Edition

Identify mammal tracks of the Pacific Coast with this pocket-size guide.

Whether you’re at the beach with your family or on a hiking or camping trip, you’re bound to come across wildlife—or signs that animals have been there. If you’re curious about mammals of the Pacific states, then Pacific Coast Mammal Finder by Ron Russo is just what you need. With the handy, easy-to-use book, you can identify mammals by sight, as well as by their animal tracks, burrows, nests, scat, scratch or chew marks, and skulls/jaws.

The booklet begins with introductions of the various signs, followed by two dichotomous keys: one for identifying animal homes and another for scratch and chew marks. Simply answer a series of simple questions based on appearance to identify what type of mammal was there. A field guide section presents more than 50 mammals, complete with professional illustrations by Pam Frazier, range maps, and detailed descriptions to help you identify each species.

Book Features:

  • Step-by-step guide to mammal identification
  • More than 50 species of common and important mammals
  • Guides to their signs: chew marks, nests, scat, skulls, tracks, and more
  • Professional illustrations with key markings for identification
  • Small (6- by 4-inch) format that fits into a pocket or pack

This guide is applicable to the West Coast states of California, Oregon, and Washington.
