Snail 2

The snail-like object Hermione Granger threw at Harry Potter

A snail is a mollusk with a coiled shell. Snails were used in Transfiguration class as part of the vanishing curriculum. As an invertebrate, they presented less of a challenge in vanishing than a vertebrate like a mouse, though it was still considered some of the most challenging magic of its type.

Behind the scenes

During the 1993–1994 school year, a time-travelling Hermione Granger threw a possible snail shell into Hagrid's hut, which struck Harry Potter in the back of the head.
