A '''Hippogriff''' is a magical creature that has talons on its front legs, wings, and head of a giant [[eagle]] and the body, hind legs like a regualar horse and tail of a [[horse]]. It is very similar to another mythical creature, the [[Griffin]], with the horse rear replacing the [[lion]] rear. Hippogriffs have cruel, steel-coloured beaks and large, brilliantly orange eyes. It's always sweet to Harry or most of the.

When [[Human]]s approach Hippogriffs, a proper etiquette must be maintained to avoid danger.

Hippogriffs are intensely proud creatures, and an individual must show proper respect by bowing to them, and waiting for them to bow in return before approaching. Eye contact should be maintained at all times, without a single blink. The Hippogriff should be allowed to make the first move as this is polite. If offended, it may attack.

Although proud, Hippogriffs can also be fiercely loyal and protective of those who have earned their trust, as demonstrated by [[Buckbeak]] on at least two occasions; when he attacked [[Severus Snape]] in defence of [[Harry Potter]] during the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]], and again when he led Hogwarts' [[Thestral]]s in attacking [[Voldemort|Voldemort's]] [[giant]]s during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]].

"Easily offended, hippogriffs are. Don't never insult one, 'cause it might be the last thing yeh do."
Rubeus Hagrid talking to the class about Hippogriffs[src]

A Hippogriff is a magical creature that has the front legs, wings, and head of a giant eagle and the body, hind legs and tail of a horse. It is very similar to another mythical creature, the Griffin, with the horse rear replacing the lion rear. Hippogriffs have cruel, steel-coloured beaks and large, brilliantly orange eyes. The talons on their front legs are half a foot long and appear deadly.

Etiquette

"Now, firs' thing yeh gotta know abou' hippogriffs is, they're proud. Easily offended, hippogriffs are. Don't never insult one, 'cause it might be the last thing yeh do. Yeh always wait fer the hippogriff ter make the firs' move. It's polite, see? Yeh walk towards him, and yeh bow, an' yeh wait. If he bows back, yeh're allowed to touch him. If he doesn' bow, then get away from him sharpish, 'cause those talons hurt."
Rubeus Hagrid teaches his first class about hippogriffs.[src]

When Humans approach Hippogriffs, a proper etiquette must be maintained to avoid danger. Hippogriffs are intensely proud creatures, and an individual must show proper respect by bowing to them, and waiting for them to bow in return before approaching. Eye contact should be maintained at all times, without a single blink. The Hippogriff should be allowed to make the first move as this is polite. If offended, it may attack. Hippogriffs are tameable, but only by experts in their care (such as Rubeus Hagrid, Care of Magical Creatures Professor and Gamekeeper at Hogwarts).

Although proud, Hippogriffs can also be fiercely loyal and protective of those who have earned their trust, as demonstrated by Buckbeak on at least two occasions; when he attacked Severus Snape in defence of Harry Potter during the Battle of the Astronomy Tower, and again when he led Hogwarts' Thestrals in attacking Voldemort's giants during the Battle of Hogwarts.

Diet

The diet of the Hippogriff consists mainly of insects, birds and small mammals such as ferrets. When breeding, Hippogriffs build nests on the ground, and lay only a single, fragile egg. The egg usually hatches in twenty-four hours. Infant Hippogriffs are capable of flight within a week, but it takes many months before they are strong enough to accompany their parent on long journeys.

Protection from Muggles

Owners of Hippogriffs are required by law to cast a Disillusionment Charm on the creature every day to prevent it from being seen by Muggles.

Hippogriffs at Hogwarts

A herd of Hippogriffs are kept at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and Rubeus Hagrid used them in his first Care of Magical Creatures class in 1993.[HP3]

Etymology

Derived from the Greek word "hippos" meaning "horse" and the magical creature known as the griffin. In this case, it has the body of a horse as opposed to a lion, but keeps the head of an eagle.
