    Seems like the concensus is crawfish tracks.

    I think it's something else entirely.

    I think these are accumulated catkins from willow or cottonwood that were washed in with the water, and randomly placed, possibly by receding waters.

    Well I can say this I've never seen a crawfish barrow through mud like that.They do dig holes straight down and leave a chimney looking hole.Which are much bigger looking then that.

    I have seen those too lol. All the time. (I didnt mean to imply that I saw the hawk pull crawdads out of this track) I thought it sounded good but Ill go back to my original guess of insect or water bug. :P

    No biggie BCH,
    I think the path/tunnel/burrow speaks for itself.All one has to do is look at how the thing comes in & out of the ground & follow the S shaped path it made.Also worms come to surface after rains,to mate or gather water for there skin or they will dry out & die.

    You could be right. I have seen these and I have seen the crawdad holes all the time hiking the dry swamps. Wild hogs love to dig them up. I just always thought they were some kinda water bug but worm sounds good. Ill be following this post to see if you are correct.

    Do you dig these up for fishing?

    Re: What kind of creature makes this kind of track?

    Well, ya could just go back again and scoop up the area with yer hands and see what made those tracks. Unless you're too chicken or squeamish . A clam will bury itself at one end or the other, even a small one, and they don't bite ........NGE

    My vote goes for an insect that spends most of it's time underground, comes out after a rain, or when you water your garden. Common name is "mole cricket". Sorry I do not remember the correct name. They are very fast diggers....

    Sure BCH,
    As a kid we dug them all the time. Back home the water was more brackish & supported bass,blue gill,pike,Etc.But here where we live now were to close to the ocean all sand & salt.So don't see many earth worms.Lots of marine type though.Anyway once we got older we found the trick for worms that made it easy to get them when you wanted.Take a old refridgerator tare out all the shelves lay it on it's back fill 3/4 full of dirt & through a hand full of worms in it.Feed them table scraps like potato peels,corn meal,& wet news paper keep damp & covered with plactic or door from frig itself.And they will multiply quick & always have them when needed.


    Here's another shot and site for worms.

    Re: What kind of creature makes this kind of track?

    I cant believe I was right about insect. I never tried to dig one up but we have plenty of these things in Florida. Big ugly nasty ones. The best way to rid them from your yard is to let the armadillos eat them.

    Good ID oddrock!

    Good supporting pics timekiller.

    Ive seen these trails many of times
    they usually show up in the morning, trails are created in the night and depending on the worm,
    earth worms, they leave a trail of dirt waste that they ingested. usually at night
    I'm sure there is a wide variety of worms, just depends on the worm local to you
    Look up night crawlers
