But definitely a snake track of some sort in my opinion
That would be one heck of a snake if it was, that track was beeeg. Rock python? What else could get that size?

It's also slightly irregular in movement, not completely rhythmic like a snake-track. The 2 tracks are made by the 2 "phalanx" fingers at the tip of it's trunk which it uses to hold small twigs or items. Compare the distance between the 2 tracks relative to the car-tracks it's placed on. There were probably elephant foot-prints next to the existing car-tracks too but these could have been driven over by subsequent vehicles.
What Riverrat said, seen them meandering down the roads, they drop their trunks for a while then lift them again leaving these marks.
