How did the Weasley twins have created new creatures like Pygmy Puffs who are miniature, pink and purple puffskeins ?

How puffskeins or pygmy puffs reproduce (they look like star trek's tribbles, who reproduce a lot and very fast) ?

Do you think they have a gender or they are hermaphrodite like snails (Ginny calls his pygmy puff Arnold, a male name) ?


Pygmy Puffs, are bred by Fred and George Weasley. They are miniature Puffskeins. So, we can imagine, that they share the same characteristics, except the tall (Pygmy Puffs are smaller than Puffskeins), the colour (Puffskeins are custard), Puffskeins can be found worldwide (it's not necessarily the case of Pygmy Puff which is a newer creature)...

All the information provide from books written by JK Rowling.

Ministry Classification :

XX : Harmless - May be domesticated

Creation :

Mid 1990s in Great Britain

Physical Appearance :

Round ball (furball, spherical in shape) covered in soft and fluffy fur, in shades of pink and purple. Pygmy Puffs, are said to be cute, sweet, funny and fairly cuddly.

Lifestyle & Activity :

They can live in cages (useful for car or train travel), moreover, if you put a finger through the bars of the cage, you can watch the Pygmy Puffs crowd around it. They can also live in baskets or nests (you can find nests of death Pygmy Puffs under sofa...). You can play with them. They can riding on shoulders.

Behavior :

It is a docile creature that has no objection to being cuddled or thrown about, nevertheless do not use Pygmy Puffs for Bludger practice... The Pygmy Puffs can roll around (in the bottom of a cage...) and emit high-pitched squeaks. It emits a low humming (loudly) noise when contented.

Food :

It's a scavenger that will eat anything from leftovers to spiders, but it has a particular preference for sticking its tongue up the nose of sleeping wizards and eating their bogies. It can be necessary to cure pet Pygmy Puffs of drinking out of the toilet.

Particularity :

From time to time a very long, thin, pink tongue will emerge from the depths of the Pygmy Puff and snake through the house searching for food..

Care & Attention :

Easy to care for. Cats or Kneazles can be very interested by Pygmy Puffs (for example, if you have a pygmy puff on your shoulder, you can see Cats or Kneazles mewing hopefully at your heels and trotted after you their eyes fixed upon the Pygmy Puff).

Success :

It's hard to breed them fast enough. Because of his tendency to sticking its tongue up the nose of sleeping wizards and eating their bogies, Puffskein is a highly popular wizarding pet much beloved by wizarding children for many generations. The Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the Hogwarts Express, accept the Pygmy Puffs.

Where to buy them :

Idea of name :

Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes (WonderWitch range) - Diagon Alley in London, for example.

Do they have a gender? Ginny calls hers Arnold, which is male, so this implies that they do. Maybe the males are a different colour? Llama llama llama! (talk) 05:22, June 6, 2016 (UTC)
