|Ministry of Magic Classification||
An iguana is a type of lizard possibly involved with Dark Magic. They were studied by fifth years in Defence Against the Dark Arts in the 1991-1992 school year, which was taught by Professor Quirinus Quirrell at the time. As Dolores Umbridge said in 1995 that Quirrell's classes were the only ones which would pass a Ministry inspection, iguanas were likely part of the curriculum approved by the Ministry of Magic.
Behind the scenes
- It is unknown why Professor Quirell chose to teach his students about iguanas as the Ministry of Magic classify them as "Non-magical beings".
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (film) (First appearance)
