Armadillo bile is the bile of an Armadillo, which can be used as a potion ingredient, such as in the Wit-Sharpening Potion[1] and the Armadillo Bile Mixture.[2]


A bottle of Armadillo bile

In March 1995, Harry Potter deliberately spilled his armadillo bile at the end of Potions class so he could eavesdrop on a conversation between Severus Snape and Igor Karkaroff about the Dark Mark while he cleaned it up.[1]

During the Calamity which affected the Wizarding world in the 2010s, Armadillo Bile was heavily used by members of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force in the brewing of the Wit-Sharpening Potion, in order to assist them in their daily work.[3]
