If you look close it's to different paw prints, so a raccoon, or opossum, to me it looks more like a, opossum then raccoon, it looks like it stepped on the back part with the back paw, making it look like a very large foot, but it's actually two different prints

I'm having a hard time making my eyes see the correct perspective. To me it looks inverted, or puffed out instead of depressed.

Nah, it's just uneven rocky clay terrain with mud over it. The drainage stream from my pond spillway. I was clearing little obstructions to the desired path when i noticed this.
There are no claw indentations which seems to rule out coons and possums. That only leaves space aliens.

(I cropped out the inch side of the ruler to save space/bytes.)

Maybe a bob cat? Or young couger, because there's no claws in the print, cats have retractable claws which don't show up in there prints

You'd still see the claw marks in a print this deep and in soft material like this mud.

Shape is very unlike cougar print.

Print has deep shadow. Sun was to the left.
As soon as you said that it became clear for me. Quite an optical illusion

Hmmm.... I've got some jackrabbit feet in the freezer at the ranch. When I go back there later, I'll take one out and look it over. I think you'd still see the claw marks. I've got some mud in the star tortoise enclosure. I'll thaw one and make an imprint.

Going by memory alone, I don't think their toes are spread that far apart.

i'd guess the mud separated the toes as it appears to have pushed off hard to the right ......….
