A lovely little store in Diagon Alley exists, Magical Menagerie, I have been visited it on three occasions and each time I was surprised to see how empty it was. This “pet” store of magical creatures and souvenirs is perfect for just stopping in and talking to the shopkeepers. They are full of information on the magical creatures within the shop and interesting facts.
Our personal experience with the Magical Menagerie includes two really great shopkeepers playing with Carson and Courtney for at least 30 minutes. They even got down on the ground and played with them. If you get to visit this magical little shop and happen upon these two, be sure to say hi and tell them The Temporary Tourist says hi as well.
A few of the sites of this shop in Diagon Alley include a Graphorn, a snake – that is NOT Nagini (like I previously thought), but just a Burmese Python that you can hear speaking Parsel Tongue – a Kneazle and so much more. Just ask the shopkeepers and they can point even more Magical Creatures to you.
