So kids and interested adventure people in or looking to visit Africa, if you ever wanted better clarity on the tracks that the big 5 leave in the dirt as well as the confusing tracks made by hyenas and cheetah’s, you have to look no further. Look at this simple education animal foot tracker Mind Map I made for my daughter, Lily. The Mind Map was inspired by the book, One Trillion Stories For Kids – http://www.onetrillionstories.com for kids
It features lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, elephant and hyena and cheetah foot tracks. Naturally the prints of the hyena and cheetah are not of the big 5, but we see them a lot and they can create some confusion.
The difference between the leopard and cheetah is the retractable claws that the leopards and jaguars have so you can differentiate them easily! Enjoy.
