Axehounds have angular heads which have two sensitive antennae and ear holes. Supported by six legs, axehounds have scaly hides. Their bodies are covered with a fusion of carapace and skin, smooth to the touch and more pliable than true carapace. Bigger axehounds may come up to a man's waist and can weigh as much as one ton.
Axehounds don't hold ground well, breaking into roving packs.
