Hare track

Looking at a hare track you find and interesting thing. Which way did this hare go? You would think it is from the right to the left, but when you look at the second picture you see the paws` position, so when hares travel, first their small front paws touch the ground, then the larger back feet travel over the paws still on the ground, and land in front of the planted front paws. Therefore, tracks of the front paws lie behind the tracks of the back paws.
It is moving from the left to the right.
