A chkariya (or ch'kariya) was a small burrowing mammal native to Vulcan. It resembled a Terran weasel, with pale skin, sparse hair, and two large forepaws with six razor-sharp claws which it used to climb and dig. The chkariya was active during the day, often foraging for food to maintain its high metabolic rate. It relied largely on plant roots for nourishment, but also ate fruit, carrion, and the occasional small animal.

The chkariya were one of the favorite animals at nature preserves, as they would take pieces of fruit from a person's hands. (ST roleplay module: The Way of Kolinahr: The Vulcans) These burrowing animals relied on the roots of the plants for water and nourishment. They required a great deal of sustenance because of their high metabolic rate. (ENT novel: Surak's Soul)

In 2093, a ch'kariya killed a kal'ta plant belonging to T'Pol's family. The five-year-old T'Pol trapped it, intending to release it the next day, but did not give it enough food and it died that night. The incident served as a reminder to T'Pol to avoid causing harm to other living things. (ENT novel: Surak's Soul)

Later, in 2270, Amanda Grayson suspected the creatures being responsible for damaging her garden and had tried to lay a trap to catch the suspected culprits. (TOS novel: Demons)
