I'm almost sure it's "fressen" when you're talking about animals?

It's not unusual to use "essen" for anthropomorphic animals.

Where is the umlauted capital A to use for the 'correct' answer?

Hit shift before clicking on the lowercase umlauted "a", or if you stick with the keyboard you can type a lowercase e after the A to umlaut it: "Aepfel".
