"Find me two scarab beetles and you can have it."

The scarab beetle is an insect native to Egypt.


Ground scarab beetles are used as ingredients in the Wit-Sharpening Potion.[1] Five scarab beetles are used in the Skele-Gro healing potion.


During the 1987–1988 school year, Severus Snape sent scarab beetles to Poppy Pomfrey in a failed attempt to help students afflicted by the Sleepwalking curse.[2]
