- Bull Mastiffs from Morthal in Skyrim are fearless and tireless hunters inured to the hardships of the frozen marshes. The tan variety is a favorite with scouts, hunters, and trackers.
- The slug-like Sloads of Thras bred the flame-hued Tangerine Dragon Frog so they could be spotted more easily in their archipelago's murky lagoons. Some say they were bred to be pets, but the Sload word for them translates as "snacks."
- Frequently seen sniffing items and creatures alike, these Murkmire guar glow a soft amber. Those with close ties to the swamp claim they feel it feeding the guar's light, but some scholars believe the luminescence is simply an alchemical reaction.
- When raised from the egg, these small chaurus learn commands extraordinarily well. Some folk insist that carrying the egg near your heart helps the chitterling form an attachment to you, making it less likely to wander off and become a menace to others."
- Craglorn Companions of Belkarth had no luck at all exporting Fellrunners for the High Rock and Hammerfell pet markets—until they sold a flock of the Teal-Faced variety to Fahara'jad's menagerie in Sentinel. Suddenly they were all the rage!"
- Said to have been bred by Coral-Splitter goblins to hunt for fresh fish, these aqua-blue and coral-striped durzogs spread to the shores of Topal Bay decades ago. To this day, they still love to dive into the surf and snag aquatic bounty!
The Topal Durzog is an upcoming pet. Its default name is "Fishhunter".
- The Argonian who named this multihued jelly claims inspiration from the mineral, though some note she was calling it a "watermelon jelly" first. Oddly enough, some find its flavor resembles that of the fruit.
- The large, lumbering Salamanders of southern Tamriel are known for defending themselves with various elemental bursts—all but one, the Toxin Skin variety, which relies on venom instead. Not even the Sapiarchs of the Crystal Tower can account for it.
- Scholars think the iridescent blue Turquoise Nixad must have inherent magical properties, because those wings certainly aren't big enough to enable it to fly. Yet fly it does, flitting about like a beautiful human-shaped hummingbird moth.
- "These fastidious cats bring the blessing of Tu'whacca and hold a place of honor within their chosen homes. Further, they often start sleeping with any who near death, and thus we venerate them as guides to the Far Shores."—Tanandra, Scholar-Errant
- The most popular conjecture about the origin of the Vvardvark is that it's a magical hybrid created by a rogue Telvanni wizard. The coloration of the Tuxedo Vvardvark, according to this theory, was intended to enable it to hide in a flock of chub loons.
- Stories whispered among Nords decades ago told of a reclusive dark-furred lynx that eats the spirits of those who barred from Sovngarde. Imagine their surprise when they found a few domesticated as tent guards during a raid on Reach natives.
