E. Hitchcock 1848Hind feet the larger, three leptodactylous toes in front, and one proceeding from the posterior part of the heel. Toes on the fore foot, three in front; perhaps one behind. Heels before and behind, long and crooked. Toes of both feet much curved outward. Tracks in two parallel rows. Feet slightly resembling an anchor, and hence the name.
