Rat (Norway) Track Mold
Norway Rat Track Mold
Made from flexible vinyl polymers, this non-toxic, life-size track mold can be filled with clay or Perfect Cast®, the durable replica compound used by museum professionals (also available from Acorn Naturalists). Use the track cast made from this mold as an instructional aid that can be pressed into moist sand, dirt, or ink to make track patterns. Have students take home their own track cast, or paint them for use in displays. The mold features the name of the animal (reversed out so that it appears correctly on the positive cast). To keep track molds fresh, wash occasionally with detergent. Track molds are recommended for ages 8 and up, with adult supervision.
