A Horker

Horkers are sea animals, similar in appearance to a walrus, that typically live in packs of three or four. They are usually found on ice at the sides of rivers in northern Skyrim.

You can occasionally see a horker crawling up a slope near the seaside. They will become hostile if you approach too closely or provoke them. Horkers are very slow and easy to avoid and outmaneuver, making them easy targets. In water, however, they are much faster and harder to outrun. You may loot their corpses for horker meat and tusks.

The Dragonborn add-on features a unique horker named Lord Tusk on Solstheim. There is also a unique dead horker in Skaal VillageDB.


The Hearthfire add-on lets you build a horker statue on a large base in the trophy room addition of any homestead. The materials needed are:



  • Horker YounglingDB is a kind of unique horker with decreased size not found in-game. You can only encounter it in Editor Smoke Test Cell.
