Long, wide, flat feet with a rough appearance. Like large crocodile or alligator feet. Has four or five toes, The toes have wide nails which do not extend out like long claws. The toes are not spread apart. Small, narrow forelimbs with small hands. Each hand has three fingers with claws that resemble chicken feet. They seem to hang down at the elbow joint. Small dinosaurs with a physical appearance similar to a kangaroo or a bipedal lizard. Skin is hairless. The tail is covered in rough scales with points coming off the edges. The scales are of an almost inverted triangular shape, not quite diamond shaped. The skin of the legs is not scaly like the tail, but rough like the skin of an elephant. The underside of the body does not possess any scales either, but rough leathery skin, smoother than the legs. The back is leathery, not covered in scales like the tail, but there are points sticking up. Face like a dog, or snake. Silhouette of the head is more like that of a kangaroo than anything else. Long tail like that of an alligator as long as a car. It comes straight off the body. The width of the top of the tail is wider than its udder body. It does not have a long neck.
