Animals have been featured in movies since the medium was invented, and over the years, there have been a ton of films featuring all sorts of critters. Whether it's a movie with thousands of horses or an animated feature about anthropomorphic insects, odds are, somebody put in the time and energy to research the animals themselves, so they are portrayed properly. Animals have been the leading players in movies like Homeward Bound, and they've been the sidekicks of heroes in films like Every Which Way but Loose and many more.
Animals can be difficult to control, so people are often behind the best animal actors in film history. They ensure their furry, scaled, and feathered friends are treated properly and do what's necessary to move the story forward. On top of that, animal handlers ensure their actors are depicted accurately, which can be done in ways that viewers tend to miss. There are many surprisingly accurate movie details about animals that demand a rewatch, and the best are featured here.
