The Bundimun is a magical creature found worldwide. It is a greenish, many-eyed fungus that feeds on dirt and can destroy a whole house. Their presence is indicated by the foul stench of decay. The secretions of the Bundimun rot building structure, and if a house gets a large enough infestation it can collapse. Scouring Charms can clear out small infestations, but large colonies should be dealt with by the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures (Pest Sub-Division). Bundimuns are known to spit out acid that can seriously harm anyone who bothers it.
