Would you rather face a dragon or the acromantula?

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a feature started by Leah over at Uncorked Thoughts. The idea is to get Harry Potter fans together and discuss our favorite things about the series; be it a favorite moment, character, magical item, spell, quote or object from the books, films or J.K Rowling herself.

For this week We’re talking about facing either one of a dragon or an acromantula, so what would it be? Let’s discuss both before letting ourselves make a death wish.

An Acromantula is believed to be a wizard-bred species, designed to guard dwellings or treasure hoards, and were first created before the Ban on Experimental Breeding, 1965. In contrary to most non-magical spiders, Acromantulas are social animals, who live in large colonies consisting of hundred’s of their species. These colonies are led by the oldest male and female of said colonies, who are highly respected and met with absolute obedience.

So basically if I’m not liked by one I’m eaten by them all :O Well, I can think of less Gore-like ways to die.



Dragons are able to fly and breathe fire through their nostrils, they are one of the most dangerous and hardest to conceal creatures in the wizarding world. The Ministry of Magic classifies them as XXXXX, known wizard killers that are impossible to train or domesticate.


So I’d just freak out with the flying and fire but then there are razor sharp teeth and horns 😮


Did I mention claws that could rip off my skin and shred me into pieces, literally?


Well, I guess I’d rather take my chances with a group of venom filled giant spiders than a fire-breathing flying dragon that would leave me no chance of escape whatsoever.

So what would be your pick?
