Species information
Skin colour

Grey with green spots

Native range


Length of average adult

12 inches

Ministry of Magic Classification


The Mackled Malaclaw is a land creature that has a close resemblance to a lobster. The Malaclaw has light grey skin with green spots, and can reach a length of twelve inches. Despite the fact that it has a resemblance to a lobster, it is unfit to eat, and anyone who does eat the flesh of a Malaclaw will come down with a nasty fever and develop a green rash.

The Malaclaw is found along the rocky coastline of Europe and dines mainly on crustaceans. A bite from a Malaclaw has the unusual side effect of making the victim unlucky for up to a week. Any witch or wizard bitten by a Malaclaw should call off all bets, wagers and ventures since they will definitely go against them.
