    I know there are many items you can eat in the game to restore health. But do they eat the same sort of things that other races eat or not?

    I'm just wondering since they are reptiles.

    In terms of actual in-game mechanics? There are no special items/foods that have different effects for Argonians, no.

    In terms of role-play, I always make sure my Argonian has a stash of Salmon Meat in his inventory, as many of the other little fish (River Betty, Spadetail, etc) that he can find, and slaughterfish eggs which are treated as a delicacy (like caviar). Fish seems appropriate for sustenance for a marsh-dwelling species to me.

    I don't think in lore there are any physiological reasons Argonians can't eat anything Humans or Elves can. They may have a preference for fish but no banned foods.

    My Argonian makes and eats vegetable soup, and other vegetarian related foods. He wont touch meats, except for the occasional fish. He has a weakness for Honey-nut treats. He also likes mead.

    Are we talking about Argonians or Khajiit with all the fish being consumed? I would assume that being lizard-like, Argonians would be more inclined to go for raw beef/venison/goat etc, as well as vegetables and fruits..?

    I'm not sure at all to be honest, just seems like the poor fish are getting the raw side of the deal with the beast races trying to get at 'em :p

    Maybe Iman, but they have small teeth and may find meat to be a little hard to chew.. so softer things like fish and vegetables/fruits would probably suit them better. The khajiit would not have any trouble eating meat with their large canines.

    Argonians seem to me to be strictly carnivores. Like gators and crocs, they don't chew their food but instead tear off chunks and swallow. Their stomach acid is equipped to deal with unchewed meats, unlike herbivores and omnivores.

    I gotta ask where are we getting this info. This seems like details the developers would gloss over yet we are speaking in absolutes. Hahaha

    I am playing Morrowind at the moment and I am a dark elf.. I went into a cave and released some prisoners, two of them Argonians and when I approached them they mumbled "Fresh catch"..or something like that.. I thought they were going to eat me!
