The Phoenix (Phoenix arabica.), rarest of the fabulous beasts, is incredibly clean, often relieving itself of parasites by rubbing its foreclaws together to set fire to its nest and bathing in the flames. Contrary to popular belief, they remain quite healthy afterwards. The Archaeopteryx was initially thought to be a primitive form of phoenix, but Dinosaurology confirmed this to be false.

expressing a preference for dates. A Phoenix will only nest in the top of cinnamon trees. Ashes from their nests prolong life if kept near you, though they should never be ingested. Helpfully, Dr. Drake included some in Monsterology alongside one of their prehistoric parasites, trapped in amber. Phoenix chicks need to have a flame bath every three months to remove fire leeches. In Wizardology, their feathers are used in spells for flight. Interestingly, they seem to have teeth, a throwback to Mesozoic ancestors of avians.
