This question already has an answer here:
In a world that is full of fantastic beasts known to the Wizarding community why are the crests for the houses at Hogwarts normal or Muggle animals (snake, lion, badger, eagle)? Also all the animals that the students and teachers conjure when using the Patronus charm e.g.. Harry’s stag, Hermione’s Otter and Luna’s Hare. Dumbledore has a Phoenix and rightly so, but that’s the only magical creature in the lot.
Was this an oversight, a missed opportunity, a way to simplify the world or just merely a way to make us Muggles identify more strongly with the animals we are familiar with?
Also Animagus' can so far as I know only transform to non magical creatures...
