Location information

North Side, Diagon Alley, London, England

Permanent residents

Crookshanks (formerly)

The Magical Menagerie is a shop in North Side, Diagon Alley. It is very cramped and noisy with every inch of wall covered by cages. It sells all kinds of animals - poisonous orange snails, a giant jewel-encrusted tortoise, sleek black rats that are very intelligent, owls, ravens, cats of every colour, Puffskeins, a Transforming Rabbit and much more.


Magical Menagerie in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (film).

It was here that Ron Weasley got some Rat tonic for his pet rat, Scabbers, (who was really Peter Pettigrew, hiding in his animagus form) and Hermione Granger got her cat-Kneazle crossbreed, Crookshanks.

Behind the scenes

  • In the film adaption of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone the Magical Menagerie has a mistake. When Harry Potter looks around, the camera is zooming into a bat, we see the green text "MAGICAL" on a red awning and later when Hagrid explains where Harry's money is we see the green text "MENAGERIE" on a red awning at the end of the Alley.
  • Pottermore users can purchase some of enumerated above species, and make them their pets.[3]
