Plimpy

A kind of fish, shaped like a ball with two long, rubbery legs and webbed feet. If you happen to spot a plimpy with its legs tied in a knot, you will know that merpeople are around (FB).

The stream near Bottom Bridge, behind the Lovegoods’ house, contains Freshwater Plimpies that Xenophilius uses to make soup (DH20). Luna carries a Gurdyroot to ward off Gulping Plimpies (HBP20).
