MOM rating likely not accurate on page

I think an XXXXX would mean dangerous and impossible to domesticate.  Therefore, as the most dangerous rating,  doubt Albus Dumbledore would let Lupin bring students in range of such a danger (but then again, Dumbledore let imposter-Moody use the Unforgivable Imperious Curse on students so who knows what Dumbledore would do). 

I think it more likley that it was a XXX rating, meaning that a competent wizard could deal with.  (An XXXXX would likely need to be killed by Lupin to save the kids!.)  I think a simple jinx could repel them, which wouldn't be the case for something with an XXXXX rating (it takes about 6 wizards to stun an XXXXX dragon for instance.)  MongooseLover (talk) 05:16, January 6, 2014 (UTC)

You're misreading. It's XXXX, not XXXXX. And regardless of what's "likely", all M.O.M classifications come directly from Fantastic Beasts. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 05:19, January 6, 2014 (UTC)
Are you sure you aren't thinking of a kelpie?  (Also, I have Fantastic Beasts myself, somewhere, haven't seen it in years.  However, though I saw it was XXX there.) MongooseLover (talk) 05:24, January 6, 2014 (UTC)
I can't check myself, actually, as I'm away from my copy of the book. Flagging this as an active discussion so someone can check this and (if wrong) correct it. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 05:29, January 6, 2014 (UTC)
No, it's definitely four X's (XXXX). I admittedly don't see why this would be necessary if you can just write your name in a cucumber and it'll leave you alone. But that's what the book says. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 11:51, January 6, 2014 (UTC)

Habitat

In fantastic beasts and where to find them, it says kappa is a japanese water demon but doesn't say they are mainly in Japan.

It's most likely that it's native in Japan but more commonly found in Mongolia, this make a lot of sense.
