Its skull is rounded due to the development of its brain. It also has well-pronounced mandibular prognathism as an adaptation to its diet. Its orbits are very large and complete. The temporal muscles used to masticate and grind plant matter are attached to the superciliary arch above the eyes. Its dentition is bunodont, with low rounded cusps. Its teeth are well adapted to cutting, breaking up and grinding plant matter. It has 32 teeth, with the following dental formula: I 2/2, C 1/1, P 2/2, M 3/3.
