The 45th track left in the mud was the 11th cast to be taken from the site. Even though the print was left in a fairly mossy substrate, it shows great depth in both the toes and the heel. The heel impressed a full 17 mm into the ground on its medial edge.
Three of the toes are plainly visible, with only a faint impression left by the fourth digit. No trace of the fifth digit is discernable. The first digit seems to have left two marks in what Dr. Grover Krantz has referred to as a “double strike.”
A large overflow of plaster occurred when casting this print. The overflow is what accounts for the portion of the cast in front of the toes.
