Skeevers are large rats found across most continents in Nirn. They make their homes mostly in caves and sewers, but can be found anywhere that isn't to cold or exposed. They can be found in larger groups if there is enough food and space, otherwise they become more territorial.
Skeevers are omnivores, and will attack creatures ranging from farm animals to people hoping to overpower them then eat. Despite them being rather hostile, it is not uncommon to have people keep them as pets. This is not an accepted act however, as Skeevers are known for to carry sickness and disease.
