The London Trackway – 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.

The heel and sides of this impression were nicely curved with a very natural shape.  The ball and the medial edge of the foot impressed more deeply than the rest of the surface.

The cast has a large area in front of the toes where plaster overflowed from the impression and dried.
