I was wondering if there were any skeletons for animals like the Howler and Wampa that I could download.

Sorry if this was posted about before.

Animals use their own skeleton for their individual models. Therefore, if you wanted to rig an animal, you should be able to use whatever skeleton you want (iirc), however if you do this you might need to make your own animations too, so I dunno.

So for creatures the options would be to reskin an existing one or two build one's own animal from scratch since the skeletons are built into the animals? It's an interesting concept I'm eager to learn about.

I'm not entirely certain about animal skeletons, but I do know that a lot about animals is hardcoded to the animal type. You might need to build the animal skeletons from scratch though.

Just to clarify, do you mean skeletons in the animation/rigging sense, or an actual model of a skeleton that you could put into a map?

Skeleton in the rigging sense, like the howler skeleton so i can weigh a 4 legged animal

Well its going to need to be one weird 4 legged animal if its going to share a howler skeleton. I'm not aware of anywhere that you can get one but i suppose they must be around somewhere.

The JKFiles main site has all of Raven's skeletons in their database. Raven made two or three packs of skeletons and animations, one of which consisted of the non-humanoid skeletons. If you manage to import one into XSI or Max, you can use it.
