Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them : Illustrated Edition
It resembles a somewhat slimy, buck-toothed ogre and generally resides in attics or barns belonging to wizards, where it eats spiders and moths. It moans and occasionally throws objects around, but is essentially simple-minded and will, at worst, growl alarmingly at anyone who stumbles across it. A Ghoul Task Force exists at the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures to remove ghouls from dwellings that have passed into Muggle hands, but in wizarding families the ghoul often becomes a talking point or even a family pet. The danger was recognised in time and the species protected, the most notable factor being the substitution of the Golden Snitch for the Snidget in the game of Quidditch. The Golden Snidget gains a XXXX rating not because it is dangerous but because severe penalties are attached to its capture or injury. It is a pure white, horned horse when fully grown, though the foals are initially golden and turn silver before achieving maturity.
