Their bodies were covered in segmented armour of a deep green colour with each segment revealing long chitinous limbs. The creatures could be as long as eighty paces.

During mating season, the males were said to spend their time competing for mates rather than eating. Sharks, normally afraid of individual serpents, would trail along the edges of dhenrabi gatherings to consume the losers' remains.[3]
