This isn't the animal, but the tracks of the animal. For scale, the lens cap is 3.1 inches in diameter, so that makes the paw print maybe 2.5 inches. The mud was sticky and fresh, and I believe that the prints were about twelve hours old. The pine needles are about eight hours old due to wind. This was Friday at an obscure lake in Yosemite where almost nobody goes.
Mountain Lion, perhaps a young one. We heard a coyote chorus three times during the night. The prints are too large for a coyote.
