As its name implies, Varanosaurus looked very similar to present-day monitor lizards. It had a flattened, elongated skull and a pointed snout with a row of sharp teeth, including two pairs of conscipcuous pseudocanines. It was a small, nimble reptile, shown by its dentition to have been a predator.
