Hands (paws, hooves, or otherwise) down, this is the most legitimate tracking bandana.
Accurate identification and interpretation of animal behavior via track and sign is an outdoor skill that has been all but lost by the average person, even to the most experienced outdoors-folks. Learning even the basics of tracking will yield a more enriching awareness in nature as well as a practical tool when your life may depend on it.
It should be acknowledged that this is not the first tracking bandana ever made, but hands (paws, hooves, or otherwise) down, it’s the most legitimate! It contains the most accurate tracks available, shown to scale, and includes default gaits for each animal.
We partnered with tracking experts to help guide us and choose the list of animals based on certain criteria that would allow you to have the most success with this bandana. We requested animals:
Found across the majority of North America
Most abundantly found in the wild
That may indicate water nearby
That are easy food sources
Most useful for side-by-side comparison
We also included false eyespots. These are a form of mimicry adapted by various insects, birds, fish, and reptiles, as well as by some human cultures. The bandana can be folded so the “eyes” face outward and can be worn on the back of the head to serve the same purpose, or worn on the front while napping.
