This large convex footprint of an unknown amphibian was found in two pieces that were glued together. The El Pueblo facies has produced several of these footprints in the past. The large amphibians were probably some of the first highly reproductiveanamniotesthat provided an important link in the food chain of early Permian swamps. Their taxonomic place dates back to the late Carboniferous, and at one time they may have cracked seashells to feed on inland-marine snails. After becoming terrestrial this strong-jawed amphibious hunters may be responsible for the many finely masticated bones found in end-Carboniferous calcitic swamps. This footprint might belong to the ten-feet long Diadectis or to the shorter, early Eryops that had short feet.Most tetrapod skeletons in existence lack digit bones and the feet are reconstruction estimates. A short palmer and plantar region usual signifies good upward and downward wrist movement as for swimming, perhaps related to deeper water of marine lakes of the Carboniferous.
