The Streeler is a giant snail native to Africa, but has been successfully bred by wizards in Europe, Asia and North America. Streelers have sharp spikes on their shells, which inject venom. This defence is most likely to scare off or kill its attackers, such as birds and small to medium sized rodents.

It is kept as a pet by those who enjoy its kaleidoscopic colour changes. Streeler venom is one of the few known substances that can kill Horklumps.
