Coelod are fur covered creatures resembling rhinos due to their central horns on their heads. An adult Coelod is 3.7 metres (12 feet) in length, and 2 to 3 tons on average, but they could probably grow to 4.3 – 4.4 meters (over 14 feet) in length (This is more than the modern white rhino). The Coelod could grow up to be 2 meters tall. Two horns on the skull were made of keratin, the anterior horn being 1 metre (3 feet) in length, with a smaller horn between its eyes. It had thick, long fur, small ears, short, thick legs, and a stocky body.
Coelod are herbivores. Coelods use both grazing and browsing modes of finding food, though prefer grazing on sedges and grasses.
Coelod form into herds. These herds often consist of multiple family units and the largest herd ever seen had 250 Coelods.
