Terror Birds, also known as Khrasaat in Ta'agra, are large, carnivorous and flightless birds found in Elsweyr. They are very aggressive towards anyone who approaches them or their territory. Terror Birds have a communal nature when it comes to looking after their young and eggs with pack-like behavior, and will attack anything that comes near the nest without hesitation. Terror Birds are also extremely strong and are seen as a challenge by Khajiit warriors, in which the warriors die almost as often as they win against the beast, they have also been recorded taking down a Senche-Cat. Their diet consists of meat, from animals such as antelope and sometimes men and mer, though the Altmer mistakenly seem to think that a Terror Bird's diet consists of only moon-sugar plants.
Terror Birds' gizzards have been used as waterskins, and their beaks can be fashioned into an effective pair of metal shears. Dolls resembling Terror Birds have also been made, though these have a tendency to scare children. Wooden figurines resembling the Terror Bird have also been sold in Anequina. Their meat is described as being "Tough, stringy, greasy, and tasting like used boots". Because of this, some believe that it's not worth the difficult task of hunting one.
