The Barroth is a bipedal, heavily armored creature with a clubbed tail and huge claws. A solid block of keratin takes up most of its head and is used like a hammer, to head but, and charge enemies. It is brown with a grey underbelly and its nostrils are located on the top of its head which is kept above the mud when submerged to allow it to breathe. To protects itself from the harsh sun in its arid habitat the Barroth sleeps in and stays close too large pools of mud. The Barroth may shake off excessive mud that will quickly dry and encase anyone it lands on. It will need to return to the mud to refresh itself and when exhausted it will feed on carrion or destroy Altaroth mounds to feed on them.
When free of mud it is weakest to fire and immune to water but while covered in mud it is weakest to water and immune to fire. The Barroth is one of the most easily enraged monsters and will sometimes be attacked by Great Jaggi when in the same area.
