Grindylow the magical monster "Splinterlands Art Contest! // Week 158 //


Hello everyone, I draw this new magical monster (Grindylow) to splinterlands game...I took this creature from the wizarding world and I transformed him to be a monster in splinterlands, by using sketchbook app.

Everything you need to know about this new creature (behaviour, habitat, appearance...) :


  • His behaviour :

Aggressive towards witches, wizards and muggles alike, the Grindylow was only ever tamed by merpeople; the half-fish water dwellers who sometimes kept them as pets.

  • Diet :

Grindylows survived, for the most part, on fish, algae, and small sea creatures; however, occasionally they would eat humans (it is for this reason that they are classified as dark creatures).

  • The habitat :

These creatures were found in the weed beds at the bottom of lakes in Great Britain and Ireland.

The Grindylow was particularly prevalent in Yorkshire, where it displayed a large amount of physical variation. It was generally found in still or stagnant water.

  • Physical appearance :

The Grindylow was a sickly green colour, with green teeth and small pointy horns on its head. It had long, strong (albeit brittle) fingers which it uses to strangle its prey, and is a rather good swimmer, since it is adapted to live in water.

  • Defence :

The Grindylow had long, brittle fingers which despite their fragility were rather strong. The trick to escaping a Grindylow was to break their grip on a person; the Revulsion Jinx would help with this task, as underwater it shot jets of boiling hot water.
