Extended Description[edit]

Beginner warning: Details follow which you may not wish to read at your current level.

Boomslang skin is used rarely enough that it is not in the student supply cabinet with most other potion ingredients. Hermione determines that in order to make their Polyjuice Potion, she will have to sneak into Professor Snape's office, and arranges a diversion, with Harry's help.

When Boomslang skin turns up missing in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Snape accuses Harry privately of having stolen it.

A Boomslang is an actual creature, despite the exotic name; it is a venomous snake that is native to parts of Africa.
