Track ID please

Initially I assumed these tracks were from a rat, however the shape of the pads seem a bit unusual. Any thoughts from someone who is more expert than me?

The prints were obtained from a standard tracking tunnel.

Hi the two pads at rear make me think it might be a Weasel.
I don’t know if you have a copy of Booklet that Warren made but if you Google " what made these tracks "
it covers tracks by comon species. I haven’t talked to him for years but Gotcha where you probably got your cards from are really helpful with ID odd prints
cheers Dave


Thanks (again) Dave, I will look up the weasel and if necessary contact Gotcha.

Hi found the link to prints

Mustelid prints always show fur in our experience and can’t see any in this pic. What was the location?

Thanks for replying Alec. I think you are correct, I have looked at the standard mustelid tracks and they don’t match. The location is regenerating Wellington bush.
