The Chaurus Chitin is found on Chaurus, Chaurus Reapers, and Chaurus Hunters in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Like dragon bones and scales, chaurus chitin cannot be sold to blacksmiths without the Merchant perk, but general goods merchants and alchemy shops will buy it.


Chaurus Chitin can be used to improve Falmer armor and weapons.

With the addition of Hearthfire, they can also be used to make a taxidermied Chaurus in the Trophy Room.
