The Limax was a magical creature with a wide, hammer-shaped head, four arms, and a serpent-like lower body.[1] It was capable of wielding multiple weapons at once, including axes, maces, and daggers.[1]


This creature was covered in The Monster Book of Monsters.[1] It was thus part of the third-year Care of Magical Creatures curriculum at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1]
