1. Aragog’s favourite book is Charlotte’s Web and he rereads it as often as possible.

2. After rereading Charlotte’s Web for the fiftieth time, Aragog laid one egg, which eventually hatched.

3. He named the baby Charlie and when he grew up Charlie moved to Romania to be with his namesake.

4. Aragog and Ron have one thing in common, they both have phobias. Aragog’s is Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia.

5. He’s never told anyone of his fear of long words because the word for his fear, Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia, scares him too much.

6. Aragog really, really hates it when the web he has just finished weaving gets destroyed, especially by flying cars.

7. Aragog likes deer and bunnies for breakfast and doesn’t really care what humans think about this.

8. Humans smell really good to Aragog, in the same way fresh bread or grilled steak smells good to humans.

9. Aragog would kill Hagrid for food if he were ever really hungry.

10. Have you ever tried to remember 1,000 names? Just imagine how hard it is for Aragog to remember the names for each and every one of his children.

11. Aragog once heard one of the muggle students mention that they were going to set up a website and had his children patrol the forest for weeks to make sure the upstart could not put a web up in HIS forest.

12. Aragog hates the fact that England is so cold and wishes he could go live in Borneo with the rest of the Acromantula but has failed in all of his attempts to get a magical passport.

13. You know that thing about him dying? Well, it happened BUT like cats Acromantulas have more than one life, in fact they have eight.

14. Aragog is very glad that his mate Mosag never knew about the black widows eating their mates heads after breeding thing because Aragog is really attached to his head.

15. Aragog thinks humans taste a bit like chicken… and unicorns.

16. “How many Acromantulas does it take to change a light bulb?” Is Aragog’s favourite joke.

17. Just in case you’re curious, it takes five Acromantulas to change a light bulb. Four to eat the human(s) inside the room where the light bulb is and another to actually change the light bulb.

18. That kid mentioned just once in the first book and never heard from again? Well Aragog ate him/her.

19. Aragog once thought of becoming a vegetarian but it didn’t work all that well because of an incident involving the whomping willow.

20. Aragog’s favourite hobby is knitting.
