Desmatosuchus is one of the largest aetosaurs, being 5 m (17 ft) long.
Desmatosuchus looked like its relatives, possessing an armored body and pig-like head. It used its shovel-shaped snout to uproot plants. Unlike most other aetosaurs, Desmatosuchus had two rows of spikes at the sides of its back, with extra long (45 cm) ones above the shoulders. These gave it extra protection against predators.
