Animals on stage

A large eagle of some sort (Winter's Tale, Roundhouse)
Chickens and a falcon (Taming of Shrew, Kyle/RSC)
A snake (Antony & Cleo (various) though the most recent RSC one was obviously rubber, the Dench/NT one looked real though)

The greatest assemblage of animals on stage must surely have been Peter Hall's famous production of Scoenberg's opera Moses und Aron at Covent Garden in 1965 when one ran the gauntlet in Bow Street of all the vans from Whipsnade Zoo bringing in several of their species for the orgy scene.

The kitten in You Can't Take It With You replaced a dog which apparently had the hots for one of the leading actresses.

And I think they once had a horse in a Shakespearean history at Ludlow castle.
