Hibernating Skrewts is the first Moment in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Chapter 21, The House-Elf Liberation Front.


There were now only ten Skrewts left; apparently their desire to kill each other had not been exercised out of them. Each of them were approaching six feet in length. Their thick grey armour, their powerful scuttling legs, their fire-blasting ends, their stings and their suckers, combined to make the Skrewts the most repulsive things Harry had ever seen.

  • The fluffy cushion is reclining on the wooden box in the middle of the page.
  • The bean is located on the left side between the first and second Skrewts from front to back. 
  • The Dried Billywig Stings are located on the right side box next to some feathers.
  • The Hemlock Essence is located between the legs of the Skrewt facing Harry and Ron.

If you mouse over the Skrewts they will move and throw fire. There are feathers in from of Hagrid that blow up. Mouse over Ron and Harry to see them blast magic from their wands. Mouse over the area in front of the girl to see dust billow up. 


You can hear the Skrewts scratching the wooden boxes, and fire cracking.
