dama wallaby tracks 1sq

Dama wallaby hind footprints at speed.

Dama wallabies usually move by hopping on their hind legs, landing on both hind feet together to make side-by-side prints (bi-pedal gait) made by the front third of the foot only. The two-pronged print shows the larger medial toe on the inside and the smaller peripheral toe on the outside. The third innermost toe, which is very small, does not usually show in footprints.
