Dinosaur kings look like a normal member of the species they bond with, albeit larger and far more intelligent. They are not truly made of flesh and blood, but of ephemeral spirit stuff that behaves much the same way. The Triceratops dinosaur kings are closer to their bonded species than others and often mate with their bonded species to produce hybrid flesh and spirit being that are nearly as powerful as their royal forebearers.
