Coelodonta is similar in appearance to the modern rhinos of today, with the exception of its hairy coat. It was slightly larger than the white rhinoceros, around 12 feet in length and weighing up to 6,000 lbs. It had two long nose horns, the larger of which could grow up to two feet in length. The bones of its spinal column feature large dorsal spines which indicate that it had a large humped back.
Cave paintings show that these rhinos may have been darker in coloration around their mid-section. Their horns are also thinner and more blade-like than those of present day rhinos, and featured a banded pattern along their length.
