Their skeletal system is lacking bones,and instead has a series of vessels contain liquids constantly moving at high pressure. This acts as a hydraulic form of movement, also removing the need for a muscular system. This means their bodies are extremely durable, able to take blows several times their weight, so long as their skin isn't pierced. However their thick skin, consisting of layer upon layer of overlapping scales, is incredibly hard to crack. The face, however, is lacking a skin, leaving it as bare flesh for reasons unknown. For this reason most Zahhak, wear helmets to procect their faces.

The Male Zahhak also sport a crest, located at the rear of the head. These are used in mating displays to attract a mate. These crests are able to be manipulated by the Zahhak, and can act as an appendage. Females do not bear a crest.
