Beastly Beastmen is a mod meant to improve on Argonians and Khajiits so that they no longer look like people in costumes, and look more like actual beast hybrids!  This was accomplished by creating custom skeletons for Argonians and Khajiits! 


  • The Races are now a bit Dimorphic, meaning that males look slightly more hunched over  and are bit bigger than females.  

  • Both males and females are now digitrade and will walk on their toes.

  • Both males and females have had several of their body parts, including spine, neck and shoulders adjusted to more appropriately fit a hybrid body-plan .  

  • Males have had their arms lengthened past normal human limits for a more convincing hybrid body-plan.


Beastly Beastmen uses custom skeleton and custom feet nifs in order to function properly. The mod should work with most texture mods without issue.

This mod will conflict with any mod that alters the beast races in particular, so you'll need to create a patch using SSEEdit if you want to use them together.

Unfortunately I don't have time to test this mod with all the custom beast mods on the nexus, so you'll have to test them yourself and report back what works and what doesn't.
