Anjanath resembles a tyrannosaurus with fur (or feathers) on its back that are aesthetically similar to the plumage of a vulture. Primarily pink in color, a dark pelt covers its back and ends in a ruff at the neck, leaving the head bald. Large fangs protrude from the monster's lower jaw, giving it the appearance of a underbite. Anjanath's massive jaws are counterbalanced by its bulky tail, the underside of which is lined with quills. Compared to its powerful hindlegs, the monster's forearms are extremely small. Hidden beneath the monster's pelt is a pair of dorsal sails, which only flare out at select moments. Anjanath can also unfold a prominent nasal crest, which it uses to mark its territory via mucus, sniff out prey, or indicate heightened aggression. Once primed, the flame sac located in Anjanath's throat will glow fiery red.
