Jason, lemurs only live in Madagascar. That's a Coati, which are related to raccoons. The various species range from AZ all the way through the Amazon. They're quite entertaining and can sometimes be seen in troops of 50 or so.

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 tracks

Mountain Lion, perhaps a young one. We heard a coyote chorus three times during the night. The prints are too large for a coyote.

Jay, I understand. The prints were too large for a bobcat and too small for a mountain lion. Due to the vegetation, I could not see any other prints behind or ahead, so I could not measure the stride. I have seen a bobcat at this same lake once, but that was over 25 years ago, so it doesn't mean much. I did not have materials with me to make a print mold.

I just wish that I had gotten an audio recording of the three sessions of coyote chorus at around Oh-dark-thirty.

I saw my first wolverines last week while hiking in the Elk Lakes Provincial Park in the Southern Canadian Rockies. Shortly after I crossed over a high mountain pass and started dropping down the other side, I spotted them racing up the talus and snow heading for the pass I had just crossed. I had enough time to take a couple of photos. Snow and wind were blowing directly in my face as I took the photos but they still turned out alright. Definitely a very special moment for me.

That is really cool

That's one of the the things about being out in the wild - seeing wildlife

Tory: Very cool to sight wolverines in the wild. Very rare, too.

Large mammals I haven't seen in the wild in the USA/Canada: Wolverines, Polar Bear (I've looked both times I've been on the Arctic Ocean), and Mountain Lion.

I've seen Mountain Lion tracks in the snow on top of my tracks from the previous day.

I think they're very wary. They actually quite commonly watch us but we don't see them.

Mountain Lions are definitely very wary. I have seen 2 in my lifetime but none in the past 20 years.

And yes, the wolverine sighting is quite a rare one. I feel very fortunate for that experience!

I also saw my first wolf this year. That along with 8 grizzly bears, nearly 100 mountain goats (including a single group of 39), and dozens of sheep. I have spent more time in the mountains this year than any other year of my life. All in all a very good year for seeing wild creatures.

I've shot only one photo of a single wolverine. Getting three in one frame is great.
