Tracks of a badger are not very large – approximately the size of a golf ball (2.5 x 2 inches). The claws on the front paw are nearly as long as the entire footprint. There are five toes arranged in a 1-3-1 grouping with the little toe on the inside of the paw being small enough that it may not leave an impression in the soil. Interdigital pad is shaped in a chevron. The front pawprint is larger than the hind one. … The walking stride of a badger averages about 14 inches (36 cm) and is the most common trail to discover, but trotting or loping strides are frequent and average about 29 inches (74 cm).
