This summer my husband came upon this track:
We'd never seen anything like it (though that's not saying much).
Here is another view with my husband's hand as reference:
My husband has big hands. Whatever it was, it was not small, which was a little scary.
Then I pictured someone carrying around a claw foot on a stick, stamping the path to see if the city folk would think it was a real track.
We went home and did some research on the internet.
A bear? Nope. Too few toes.
Big foot? Not found in Florida.
Sasquatch? The same.
It also wasn't a hog or a turkey.
We were pretty convinced it was a Skunk Ape for quite a while, but further research showed (Thank God), that their toes are more human-like. Skunk Apes smell and are aggressive towards humans.
So we asked our friend Ron, who has lived in the area for a long time.
He said if you look really close.......
......you can see two overlapping deer prints.
So there it is. We have deer on our country property. Who knew?
