You can usually see claws in coyote tracks, especially the ones on the center toes. Their front tracks are 2.25 inches wide, and 2.5 inches long. Their back tracks are usually the same, but might be slightly smaller. Their foot pad will probably look something like a nose because of its somewhat triangular shape, but it is also possible that the edges will not be too clear and only a circular shape will be visible.
