    We had a little overflow of DE/Stall-Dry/Drystall and this footprint is on the rung of an aluminum folding camping chair.
    No danger to our girls (we have tight security measures in place) but am curious.
    We have possums & raccoons - I suspect one of them...

    Have you googled this? I just did and as round as the toes look, it looks more like a skunk! Look at skunk, raccoon, and opossum and see what you think. It seems like the raccoon and opossum have long skinny toes???

    It doesn't look like the racoon paw prints I've seen, but they were all on the ground. The shape of the print may look a little different since it was placed on a vertical surface, not walking on the ground.
