2. Also Is weight distribution constant regardless of gait?

Age of track or age of animal?

The answer is NO but can you explain why?

Why will a car hydorplane at 60 mph and not at 20 mph on the same road, under the same conditions?

I was wondering bout that. :?
Human feet spread out and get wider as we age and may develop "Bunions'
So animals stay the same? :?:

Naturaly going very slow leaves less impression,
than when an animal runs.

So if print shape does vary with gait.
Does foot plant, front or rear foot change the print shape?

Look at this excellent web site:

I would like to know about reading tracks on snow/ice.
I saw mountain lion tracks and was'nt sure the age of them.
