This idea could be implemented with factory manufactured tires
(tyres) but my preference would be to create a series of
tire wraps. This would allow you to change your footprints when
wiforth to do so. The rear wheels on your vehicle would be
raised animal footprints
of your choice which would be
re-inked by a device mounted in the upper wheel well.
The inks would need to be vegetable based colors with a short half
life when exposed to UV and general weathering. Ideally only cars
a certain horsepower and above would be allowed to sport
tracks with the majority of cars on the road being herbivores or
animals'. Of course the only hard and fast stipulation is that large
trucks have dinosaur tracks. The choice of colors would be up to
driver to change as they wish.
Chicken feet tires.

||You could do this the sadistic way and have some incredibly rare animal track just to annoy natural science folk.
||Example - "Good lord Carruthers, isn't that the track of a dodo I see? Quick, after it."
||I can only applaud the way you slipped "wiforth" in
there as if it was a word.
||^Great, now I have to leave it in there. Olde English isn't it? Sorta like 'henceforth' only completely different.
||Is this a tired idea? (+)
||I had a variation on this lined up a few weeks ago that I never got 'round to typing up. I'll get there one of these days as it's different enough to warrent a new idea.
