Sorry, no etymologies found.
At Hessberg, in Saxony, the vestiges of four distinct animals have been traced, one of them a web-footed animal of small size, considered as a congener of the crocodile; another, whose footsteps having a resemblance to an impression of a swelled human hand, has caused it to be named the cheirotherium.
The footsteps of the cheirotherium have been found also in the Stourton quarries above mentioned.
