Abraxan
Huge and powerful
With giant wings and a taste
For only whiskey

Acromantula
Giant and deadly
With a poison tongue that stings
In multiple ways

Ashwinder
Thin and grey with eyes
That glow like the fire from which
It comes into life

Auguery
Thin and tired, his
Message of rain is not
A message of death

Banshee
Long black hair and a
Green face; do not listen to
Her cries of terror

Basilisk
King of serpents is
Brought into life by a toad
And gone by rooster

Billywig
Small and blue, flying
About, so giddy and free
Thanks to its stinger

Blast-Ended Skrewt
Crossing breeds is not
Legal for a reason, as
This is the result

Blood-Sucking Bugbear
Killer of roosters
Wrongly accused by Hagrid
In the second year

Boggart
Shifting into shape
To reveal what makes your heart
Tremble with terror

Bowtruckle
Razor sharp fingers
And a body like twigs, he guards
The tree he calls home

Bundimun
Green fungus with eyes
Keep the secretions at bay
Or risk your whole home

Centaur
Mysterious and
Calm observers of all things
But mostly the sky

Chimaera
Vicious and deadly
Mixing lion, goat, dragon
To create a beast

Clabbert
Green skin and short horns
When the pustule flashes red
Danger is nearby

Cockatrice
Rooster meets dragon
Don't use in the Triwizard
Tournament again

Crup
Like a Jack Russell
With a forked tail, so loyal
To wizards only

Dementor
Such darkness and pain
Sucking the happiness from
The world around you

Demiguise
Gentle and peaceful
With large black eyes and long hair
He's invisible

Diricawl
Not a Dodo, you
Silly Muggles, he only
Vanished to escape

Doxy
Small little pests with
Black hair and venomous teeth
They can infest home

Dugbog
Mistake it for a
Piece of dead wood and its sharp
May find your skin

Erkling
Small and elvish, keep
Your children away from the
Entrancing eaters

Erumpent
Huge African beast
With an explosive horn; it's
Good to stay away

Fire Crab
Tortoise with a large
Jeweled shell, stay away from
The back or get burned


25 haikus @ 5 points each = 125 points for Father Gryffindor!
