The Horka (singular: Hork) are a sapient species of brown-furred quadrupeds with manipulating appendages around their mouths. They are one of the several species which have visited Earth, being brought as passengers by Chirpsithra interstellar liners.
Like most species, they may die of old age as they grow older. Unlike Humans, they seem to have no concept of dreams.
