Paws for a mystery

You've seen pictures of animals before, but not like this. Can you identify these creatures just by their feet? Look carefully at the pictures, then read the clues. Give up? The answers are at the bottom of the facing page.

We're grateful to Boston's Franklin Park Zoo for their generous cooperation and assistance in taking these photographs.

We want to hear, did we miss an angle we should have covered? Should we come back to this topic? Or just give us a rating for this story. We want to hear from you.
