An ice eagle from Wrothgar

Eagles are birds of prey. They are used as the emblem of the Aldmeri Dominion, and elven weapons and armor often have eagle motifs.[1] The eagle is one of the ancient Nords' totem animals.[2][3] According to the Orc legends Trinimac rode a great eagle Zylvara to battle.[4]

An echatere

Echateres are large herbivorous mammals with tusks, pointed hooves, and large antlers. Found mainly in Wrothgar, they serve the Orcs as livestock and beasts of burden. They provide meat, fur, vellum, and milk for the Orcs. Echateres are stubborn and ornery.

An elytra native to Mania

The Elytra are large mantis-like creatures indigenous to much of the Shivering Isles. Although there is a marked color difference between the Mania and the Dementia Variety, they're otherwise identical. They are found in high concentrations in root tunnel systems and near caves, but inhabit almost the entire Isles. Some Elytra secrete a glowing green substance known as Felldew, prized as a powerful, addictive drug.

Emperor Crab[edit]

The spirit of an Emperor Crab

Emperor Crabs were gigantic crabs once native to Vvardenfell, contemporary with the early settled Chimer. The species died out long before 3E 427. They are described as being as large as cathedrals and some naturalists believe they are related to the mudcrab. One source claims that they devolved into the modern mudcrab after abandoning divine pursuits in favor of mundane satisfactions.
