DEN TREES—How are den trees distinguished from other trees?
Trees used by animals for dens show claw marks. Size of toe nails will indicate whether the animal is a squirrel, coon, etc. A reader writes as follows: Notice that the marks are not up and down like the scratching of dogs and cats, but somewhat like gnawings. They are gnawings and are done by squirrels. The gnawed places are about two inches wide and right or ten inches long, and if noticed when seen on a leaning tree they are on the underside. A dog or a cat would scratch on the upper side.
