J.K. Rowling’s Patronus quiz has arrived, and it doesn’t disappoint.

It may’ve been a long wait, but the official Patronus quiz on Pottermore awarded our patience. The music, the effects, and the animations raise the bar for personality quizzes. It’s simply magical!

Equally impressive? The number of animals within the Pottermore Patronus quiz. Each animal comes with its own series of animations, which might explain why it took so long for Pottermore to create the quiz. I’ve personally enjoyed watching my West Highland Terrier prance around the screen!

Turns out there are many animals, both from the Muggle world and the Wizarding world (though the latter are rare). Below, we’ve compiled what we believe is a nearly-complete list of Patronuses available on Pottermore’s quiz. We started with MuggleNet’s list, then added a bunch more we found on Reddit.

We’ve verified all of these animals and their spellings by looking on Twitter for official tweets from quiz takers.

Pottermore’s Patronus Quiz Animal List

Rare animals are marked. Pottermore is also telling some people that their Patronus is “unusual” — we don’t know if this means if the animal is rare, or if it’s just a little less common than other Patronuses.
