The Bestiary provides a listing of all known animal types from the world of A Song of Ice and Fire—animals which are directly referenced in the text, or appear on coats of arms. Most of the animals inhabiting the world are similar to those on Earth.

Special, Strange and Fabled Animals

  • Aurochs - Large relatives of the bull. They are frequently used as a symbol of size, strength, and stupidity. An aurochs was used as a mount by the mythical Clarence Crabb as a display of his prowess.
  • Bloodflies - Found in the east, they are bee-sized bloodsuckers.
  • Centaurs - Are believed in, existing in myths and legend.
  • Direwolves - Relatives of the wolf, but unlike their real-world equivalent, they are much larger and stronger than regular wolves. The are capable of reaching the size of a pony when fully grown. They are almost never seen south of the Wall.
  • Dragons - Ferocious, magical creatures, dragons are not native to Westeros, but were brought to the continent by the Targaryens. They died out over one hundred years ago, and are thought to be extinct by the people of Westeros.
  • Hellhounds - supernatural dogs, found in folklore.
  • Krakens - Huge squids said to be able to pull down whaling ships. They are largely considered a myth.
  • Lizard-lions - Massive, swamp-dwelling reptiles found in the Neck, these creatures are most likely large crocodilians.
  • Manticores - Small poisonous creatures from the islands of the Jade Sea, its sting is fatal to humans.
  • Ravens - Physically similar to common ravens of Earth, ravens in Westeros are used to carry messages between castles. The maester of each castle usually tends to its stock of ravens. Maesters raise a breed of large, white ravens[1] at the Citadel that are said to be more intelligent. Ravens sometimes imitate human speech like parrots.
  • Shadowcats - Large predatory cats with black fur and white stripes who seem to be native to mountainous regions. Their pelts are prized.
  • Sphinxes - Mythical creatures, with the body of an animal and the head of a human.
  • Unicorns - Large goat-like animals, with a long single horn on its head. Believed to live on Skagos.
  • Zorses - Black and white-striped horses, most likely similar to zebras, brought over and used as mounts by some foreigners in Westeros.
