Pronghorn Antilocapra americana

Track Shaped like split hearts, about 3" (75 mm) long; hindprints slightly shorter than foreprints. Tracking usually relatively unimportant for field observer since Pronghorn inhabits open terrain and can often be seen at a great distance.

Sign Coverings of horns that have shed can be found in late fall or winter.
Scat: Similar to Mule Deer's; segmented 3" (75 mm) masses when grazing on succulent grasses; small pellets when browsing; pellet shape variable, bluntly oval or elongate, bell- or acorn-shaped. Droppings are often deposited on bare, scraped ground.
