Posted this pic on here and on another page yesterday and 90% on the other page think its raccoon tracks. I think its gator tracks. The track on the left is an adult shoe print and the tracks on the right are from a med. size dog. Looks like a little bit of a tail drag also. Bedrock Sand Soil Geology Concrete

A gator track in that soft of mud would more then likely have a heavy tail drag. Also, the right and left tracks are much too close together, unless it is an annorexic gator. Gator's legs come off the side of their body, not the bottom like a mammal, so they have a widely set apart track.

One way to tell if its a gator is the number of toes. Gator has 5 toes on the front and 4 on the back. Can't really tell because it looks like the back prints are on top of the front ones. Was also thinking this may be beaver tracks.
