Zorro Z-Plants live in Turkey. As a baby it looks like a green plant ball and it grows from the heat to have a little body. It starts from a small plant ball that is small enough to fit in your hand. It grows to be 3 feet tall. When it unstretches from the green plant ball, it immediately grows a dome around its head. Its head is very small so other creatures could eat its head. It doesn't feel threatened because of the dome. Zorro Z-Plants eat grass and other plants. They can eat the green plant balls of other Zorro Z-Plants. Its magicalness is it can fly like a dragon. There are wings if it needs to fly away but they look like little plants leaves. Their protection is that they can look like a plant so other creatures (magical or not) don't eat them.

These humanoid wood creatures are called Livsnjutare. They are native nordic creatures, living mainly in Scandinavian countries of Norway, Sweden and Finland. They are home to woodland areas but thrive in all types of natural environments. Their names actually mean 'loves life deeply' and they find themselves protecting all forms of animal and plant life amongst the forests and woodland areas that they live. They blend into environments well with their camouflaged skin and so are very difficult to find, usually only showing themselves to us when we have proven not to be a threat to the forest and its natural life. They live off of dead leaves and insects and uses their extra eyes to spot danger and sense threats throughout their home.

The fierce and mighty pythin hails from the Lagan Valley in Northern Ireland.  Perilously close to civilization, the pythin has, for centuries, caused havoc among the population of the neighboring towns, both Muggle and Magical folk alike.  The creature is a hybrid between a python and a griffon, and it goes without saying that its diet is carnivorous.  Although very rare, the creature can be tamed by those with experience and bravery enough to try.  There is no second chances; it is a one shot attempt.  If you fail, you die.  Given those odds, few have made the attempt.  In fact, I know of only 5 pythin-riders in history, and even those are spoken of as myth.  Personally, I will never count myself among their number.

The bite of a pythin is lethal, and like the Swooping Evil, it has the ability to deflect certain spells.  It can also make itself invisible for short periods of time and has the unique ability to shoot a stream of venom for distances up to 10 feet.  My advice is this...if you ever were fortunate enough (or unfortunate as the case may be) to find yourself in the vicinity of a pythin, do yourself a favor and basically...run!

This creature, known as  a Quinxe,  has a body outline like a dragon but its skin is bright pink with various purple linear markings over its body.  Instead of fire, it breathes blue smoke.

It is native to the city of Quiberon in the south of France, where it may have been the inspiration for the Quafflepunchers' shocking pink uniforms.  It can eat anything nearby, but its preferred food is actually a Muggle humanoid confection known as cotton candy.  It is more intelligent than most creatures (and some humans), and it can also change its shape to mimic the outline of other creatures (but its shading and markings will remain the same).

This is catowl. This animal lives in the East and Central Europe, in countries such as Poland, Russia or Ukraine. Catowl lives and hunts at night. It usually lives in the forests but can be found near big cities. Catowl are carnivours but they don't hurt people. They don't fly, but they can jump very high. They are rather small, as their maximum height is less than a meter.  They are not magical but they are great hunters. 

If some witch or wizards wants to adopt this creature, they certainly can. Catowls are rather friendly but only if tamed properly.

The Blaarth is native to Iceland, where it lives exclusively. During the day, it has the outward appearance of an Icelandic sheep, and many Muggles mistake this creature for it. At night, however, it grows to be five times its normal size, shows its mouth full of sharp teeth, and hunts animals such as foxes, puffins, and seals. It is quite docile during the day but turns ferocious at night. Blaarth wool that is collected during the day is no different from regular sheep wool. But if a brave witch or wizard collects blaarth wool at night, it can be made into clothing which grants the wearer night vision and unlimited warmth. For this reason, and because they are only found in Iceland, blaarths are protected and harvesting wool is only done by certain magical folk who have proper certification.

The Whynot  is a shape-shifting creature which seems to live around the world, but it's hard to say because the appearance of the creature  changes between 3 primary forms, and the forms are of well-known 'normal' creatures (well, close to the form -- there are some internal changes which are not visible when looking at them -- especially the teeth and the ability to issue flame from its mouth). Omnivorous, it will often choose its food based on the form it is using. The Whynot is a hoarder of treasures -- but the treasures it finds are not necessarily what people think is valuable.  Usually friendly, the Whynot is approachable if tempted with proper food. It is considered a Class XXXX magical creature (dangerous/requires specialist knowledge/skilled wizard may handle), because it will protect its treasures from theft or harm and can be highly dangerous at those times.

The three primary forms of the Whynot:

Image shows a bunny shaped creature with duck feet and large black ears. It has large black eyes and is looking to the right and has the face of a bunny with whiskers. It is glowing red and has black fur. 

This creature is a cross between a bunny and a duck. It glows with flames and is hot to the touch, though it looks incredibly fluffy and harmless. It is not an aggressive creature and it lived in South Africa, but wizards rounded up the few that were left and brought them to Europe in Italy near the water. The "Fire Fluff" as people refer to it eats wood that has been burnt, so they stick close to fires and can make their own!

The name of my creature is Cathwines. It looks like a cat in general but it has baby blue wings on its back and two dark red dots on its left earㅡwhich shorter than cat's ears. This creature is small in size, about 1 foot tall. Most of them have soft blue or soft purple furs. Cathwines is native to Kieta in Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea. When spring comes, many of these creatures would fly over to Indonesia in groups and they like to sing in the sky. Like cats, they also eat fish. Aside from fish, they eat small birds and berries. The creature doesn't have many magical talents, but Cathwines are known to be good at singing and their songs would help people who are having hard times to sleep or those who have been through a heart breaks.

This is a Furfinn. This lovely magical creature was created when Witch Penny Welkin, who never liked Kneazles, decided she was tired of them attacking other creatures, such as fish. She combined the Kneazle with the Goldfish to create a Furfinn. This creature has a Kneazle's head and a Goldfishes' body. It is unable to live outside of aquariums and cannot breathe air, and it no longer attacks fish or any other living creature. When the Furfinn purrs, the plants in the aquarium create beautiful, edible flowers, and all the fish are happy. The fish eat these flowers. The poor Furfinn, however, can only eat small bites of wizard manufactured aquarium food. 

The Furfinn isn't native to any particular area, and can  be purchased anywhere wizarding aquarium fish are sold.
