Dec. 12, 2013 | San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area | Cochise County, AZ

While mapping Holocene river deposits, Joe Cook encountered these mountain lion(?) or bobcat (?) prints in moist sand of a wash near the San Pedro River in the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area, Cochise Co, AZ. Can you help us identify what animal made these tracks? (photo by Joe Cook)
