Classification: XX / Beast - Native in North Europe & North America
Gnomes live in burrows underground, known as gnomeholes, where they dig up and eat the roots of plants, creating little heaps of earth around gardens a lot like moles (and as such causing considerable damage to them). Gnomes also seem to like worms and Bertie Bott's Every-Flavour Beans. The natural predator of the Gnome is the Jarvey.
Removing them from the garden typically consists of taking hold of the gnomes, swinging them around until they are dizzy and then throwing them beyond the yard's perimeter fence or wall. Their large-size cranium is able to withstand the blow of the landing, making it much safer and cleaner than using a Jarvey. They often laugh however when a de-gnoming is not done properly.
