It looks like a beach. I can see foot marks and a central line, likely a tail. I going with a pair of snapping turtles looking for a place to lay eggs.Bill

Think the tracks might be turtles.

I love this photo (and all of your photos). Of course, the trails are from my favorite animal – the turtle.

Turtles. tracks don’t look heavy or powerful enough to be snapper tracks. First guess is ainted? But in sand like that? The wiggly tailtrack is maybe “diagnostic”, but beats me.

“Ainted” turtles are very contrary beasts. “Painted” is what should have been written.

Maybe some kind of worm, but the tracks are raised and I might have expected the tracks to be depressed. Maybe heading to water?? Dianne

Is it snapping turtles out looking for a nesting site?

Looks like turtles going to lay eggs in sand. Maybe snappers because of strong tail track.
May 9, 2013 at 1:35 pm
Hmmmm. Could it be horseshoe crabs heading for spots to lay eggs?

Looks to me like turtle tracks or a drunk fat man.
May 9, 2013 at 3:03 pm
Or two drunk fat men???

My guess was two turtles but did they walk over each other or change directions?
May 9, 2013 at 4:19 pm
It looks like two snakes of about the same size crossed paths – the one from the lower left going over the other snake as they crossed.

Snapping turtle coming and going from egg laying??
May 9, 2013 at 7:05 pm
Turtles going or coming back from laying eggs or hatched baby turtles going to the water?

turtles going to lay their eggs.

“Turtle crawl”! First one female traversing the sand to lay eggs;, then a seond whose low-slung carapace overwrote the trail of the first. Freshwater debris? Smallish turtles… How about two Painteds?

Looking for nesting sites

I agree that these are turtle tracks. Whether they were in search of each other, or a place to lay eggs, or a way back to the water, I don’t know.

My first thought was horseshoe crabs, but turtles sounds more likely.
