Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Korakkhatta:A naked ascetic in Uttarakā.He bellowed like a dog,walked on all fours,and licked up food with his mouth only.Sunakkhatta saw him and greatly admired him,but the Buddha prophesied that Korakkhatta would,in seven days,die of epilepsy and be born among the Kālakañjakas.

The prophecy proved true,and Sunakkhatta learnt the truth from Korakkhatta’s corpse (D.iii.6ff; J.i.389f).

Buddhaghosa says (DA.iii.819) that Korakkhattiya was so called because his feet turned inwards (anto vankapādo).
