The horned toad is a species of toad that can be purchased as a pet at the Magical Menagerie,[1] or used as a potion ingredient.[2]

Modesty Rabnott thought Barberus Bragge may turn her into a horned toad, or worse, for rescuing the first Golden Snidget released during a Quidditch match.[3]

In the 1994–1995 school year, Professor Snape assigned Neville Longbottom the task of disembowelling a barrel full of horned toads as punishment for melting his sixth cauldron in Potions class.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • It is unclear if the horned toad is in fact a toad, or a lizard such as the Hornedtoad Lizard.
