"Good day, class! Today we will be studying a semi-sentient plant, the Screechsnap. If, like myself, you've been teased for talking to plants, you will find this lesson particularly vindicating."
Professor Sprout introducing this plant to her fifth year students[src]

Screechsnap was a magical plant with the ability to move and make noise. It was also "semi-sentient" having the ability to feel both pain and pleasure.[2][1]

History

During the 1988–1989 school year, Professor Sprout taught her fifth year Herbology students how to handle these plants at Hogwarts, in preparation for their Ordinary Wizarding Levels that year.[1]

During a fifth year Herbology lesson in 1996, Susan Bones distractedly put an excessive amount of dragon dung on her tray of Screechsnap seedlings, which made them squirm and squeak in irritation.[2]
