Tracks in the Snow

Our property is surrounded by woods with trees and a pond. Naturally, we get all sorts of different animals running through our yard. I love feeding the squirrels and birds and watching them interact. They like seeds, nuts, and corn the best. They come right up to the window on the door to eat.

Since it's winter and there's snow covering everywhere, they make tracks wherever they run. It is always fun to try to identify which tracks belong to which animals. Today, we saw ones we've never seen before. I posted a picture below to see if anyone else knew what they were. I'm assuming the squiggly line is a tale? Let me know if you have a good guess.

It's really strange. I can't figure out what animal it would be.

I'm pretty sure it's a 'possum. I had one that looked just like that.
