The paleocinthus looked like its cousin, the ankylosaurus. Their body was covered in thick bony armor. Sharp spikes extended from both sides of their body. Their armored tail ended in a cluster of sharp, bony spikes.
Due to their natural armor, the paleocinthus was almost invulnerable to most non-magical attacks. Their sharp spines provided them with amble defensive abilities.
The paleocinthus was normally docile but became aggressive if bothered or startled.
Paleocinthus were obligate herbivores and were solitary creatures.
