Centurion Spheres patrol ruins in a spherical form until they encounter an opponent. At this point, they will erect into their semi-humanoid form and attack, often with a sword or crossbow.
Centurion Spiders (also known as Dwarven Spiders) are small, arachnid-like animunculi, and are very common in Dwemer ruins. They will often be found working on rocks or other objects. They can attack intruders by emitting poisonous gases from a bag.

Chaurus Hunters are large hostile flying insects found in caves deep below the surface of Skyrim. They possess a highly poisonous ranged attack and a powerful bite. They are the second life stage of the Chaurus, which transforms into a Hunter after several days of death-like stillness. Because Chaurus are commonly bred by Falmer for their chitin, Chaurus Hunters are often found living in close proximity.
Chickens are docile, domesticated birds common throughout Skyrim, used as egg and meat supply. Although mainly encountered around farms and smaller settlements, they can even be found within cities and towns. The Riverwood White Hen is a hardy domestic chicken found all along Skyrim's White River, said to have been originally bred in the old town of Riverwood. Owners grow extremely attached to them, and become outraged if they're harmed, sometimes resorting to violence. As a sign of the blessing of Mara, in spring certain breeds of Tamriel's hens, such as the Mara's Spring Chicken, lay eggs with shells in a variety of colors. The onyx black Daemon Fowl is speculated to originate from the Deadlands or Ashpit, lays flaming eggs, and displays glowing red eyes at times.
Chubs are small fish that can be found in foul water across Tamriel. They are used as bait to catch larger fish.
Chub Loons are small, flightless birds that can be found across Wrothgar. They make an audible honking noise when startled and will run away from known dangers. They can often be found huddling in large groups in order to retain body heat.

A species of bivalve mollusks.
Clannfears are reptilian Daedra that resemble a lizard with a large, bony crest on their head and a sharp beak and talons. They walk on two legs and use their clawed arms and sharp beaks as weapons. They are generally thought to be of animal intelligence, though it is possible that they are intelligent enough to be communicated with at times. They are known to serve many Daedric Princes and can be found throughout the various planes of Oblivion.
Clawrunners are small, pale-scaled, orange eyed, horned bipedal creatures native to the Bend'r-mahk region of Hammerfell.

Their skin is known to have powerful alchemical effects.
Cliff Darters are small, feathered flying creatures that can be found throughout Morrowind. They are related to Cliff Racers and Cliff Striders.
Cliff Racers are large flying creatures found throughout Morrowind, and are related to Cliff Striders and Cliff Darters. They are very aggressive and will attack anyone in sight. Cliff Racers have good vision range, and will often detect and follow travelers without being noticed. This can result in swarms of them descending upon the unwary adventurer. Due to their pest like nature, Cliff Racers were eventually driven from Vvardenfell by Saint Jiub the Eradicator, although they have been known to exist in mainland Morrowind well into the Fourth Era.
Cliff Striders were a species of large, winged, reptilian creatures found in Vvardenfell. They are related to Cliff Racers, and the two species existed contemporaneously. Unlike Cliff Racers, Cliff Striders had great difficulty flying despite their wings, and consequently spent their lives on the ground. Young Cliff Striders are named Cliff Skippers. In the mid-Second Era, one Thetys Ramarys of Balmora took pity on the Cliff Striders and began to breed them into a strain that she hoped would eventually dominate Vvardenfell's skies and stalk prey over long distances. However, by the late Third Era, Cliff Striders were exterminated by the Ash Blight. Cliff Stider anatomy is very similar to the hackwing, and they may be possibly related to them. Some historians theorize the relation resulted from Dark Elves raiding Black Marsh for thousands of years to bring back things they deemed valuable, such as slave labor, livestock, and critters.
A powerful Elemental Daedra native to a pocket realm of Oblivion called the Fourth Sinus of Takubar. Believed to be the inverse of Flame Atronachs, Cold-Flame Atronachs served as hovering sentries in Coldharbour during the Planemeld.

A black bird.
Crow Daedra are one of many Daedric species that mimic those found on Nirn. They are associated with the Daedric Prince Nocturnal. They resemble real crows but differ in that they can talk and they have unnatural glowing purple eyes.

They do not consider themselves Daedra and instead think themselves to be real crows.
