Female animal characters in fantasy

I have a soft spot for female animal characters in fantasy fiction (often animal fantasy, but it doesn't have to be), and I thought it might be good to take stock of just how many there are. This is for "regular" animals, not supernatural (dragons, gryphons); also, the female animal should feature prominently, in more than just a walk-on part.
