Status Data Deficient

Horkers are generally non-hostile sea animals, similar to a terrestrial walrus, that typically live in packs. They are usually found on ice at the sides of rivers in northern Skyrim. Occasionally one of these creatures can be seen crawling up a slope near the seaside. Horkers are very slow and easy to avoid and outmaneuver, making them very easy targets for the player. In water, however, the Horkers are much faster and harder to outrun. Their corpses may be looted for Horker meat and Horker tusks.
