"...A fat white rabbit kept changing into a silk top hat and back again with a loud popping noise."
—A transforming rabbit inside the Magical Menagerie[src]

The Transforming rabbit was a magical rabbit that could transform into a silk top hat at will. It was fat and white in its rabbit form and was made of black silk in its hat form.

History

The rabbit in question was on sale in the Magical Menagerie in Diagon Alley, London in 1993 when Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger entered the magical pet shop, looking for various items to purchase.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • It is unknown whether this is an entirely different species, or just a normal rabbit enchanted to transform.
  • The creature is a reminiscent of the Muggle trick in which a magician pulls a rabbit out of a top hat. It is unknown whether the rabbit is the only one of its kind or if there are others in existence in the Wizarding world.
