The London Trackway - Track #56

Track #56
London Track number 56 only shows four toes, though the fifth digit is visible in other casts. This creature seems to have been grasping the ground with its toes, and mostly with the first three digits. As it grabbed the substrate, it raised a ridge of substrate behind the line of toes which can be seen in the nighttime stills, as well as being represented as a deep furrow in the cast. This furrow measures in excess of 5 mm on the cast. Striations can be seen on the toe impressions.

  1. Great cleanup job. The toe prints look like they have captured a creature on the move and they look very flexible. Thank for the work you are doing to preserve this amazing find.
