Irresistably cuddly, the minx shares all the most ingratiating
characteristics of kittens, koala bears, and piglets. The only
discernable word out of a minxes mouth is "Minx", which is undoubtedly
the origin of the animal's name. Though having a single word
vocabulary, the minx can be understood by the emotional emphasis placed
upon the utterance. Minxes are highly prized for their ability to find
and root out chocolate truffles
from the ground, and will eagerly
devour them if given the opportunity.
Minx tails are coveted by magicians for use in various conjurations.
It is well known that some peasant hunters near the southern end of the
kept minxes as pets in 966 GUE
, although they did not always
treat them as well as they deserved.
