DEMIGUISE XXXX

The Demiguise is a peaceful, herbivorous creature that comes from the Far East. It looks like an ape with large black eyes and long silky hair. It also has long, thick eyebrows and long, thick whiskers.

ERUMPENT XXXX

This large, grey African beast looks like a rhinoceros. It weighs up to a tonne and it can attack you if you provoke it.

It has a large and pointy horn on its nose, a long tail, a big hump on its back and thick grey skin. Its four hooves, although small, can do serious damage.
Its horn contains a deadly fluid that can cause a massive explosion. That's why the Erumpent is an extremely dangerous beast.

The Niffler is an adorable animal with a long snout and a black fluffy fur. It looks like a platypus and it lives in burrows. The Niffler loves shiny objects, such as jewels or coins, and it has a pouch on its belly that can contain many things. That's why they are very good at locating treasure.

NUNDU XXXXX

This east African beast is the most dangerous in the world. This gigantic leopard moves silently and it can destroy entire villages with its highly toxic breath that spreads diseases.

Like leopards, the Nundu has black spots on its fur and sharp fangs, and it can run very fast thanks to its powerful legs. It also has sharp claws at the tip of its paws that are useful for grabbing and killing its prey. When it is angry, the Nundu spreads out a huge mane covered in spikes.
