This website has almost every image from Ellenberger's Atlas of Animal Anatomy. There are several pages of very detailed anatomical plates.
http://baby-rah.ru/de/?p=foto_pigmalion This is a gallery of hairless Sphynx cats. Great reference for hairless, wrinkly creatures.
Steve Husky is a biology professor. More importantly, his faculty profile page has many quality images of reptile and fish skeletons. Just go right click > view image to see the images at a higher resolution.
Animal Diversity Web is a great place to browse through. It has both photographs of animals and anatomical diagrams and such.
http://www.dundee.ac.uk/museum/zoology/skeletons.htm Is a nice gallery of high-res mammal skeletons.
Animals of the Fort Worth Zoo is another decent gallery of animal photos.
Digimorph! You have no idea how great this website is. It has very high-quality images of hundreds of different animal species (usually only skulls and skeletons, though). Even better, each species usually has several videos of the skull/body rotating and spinning, so you can study a specimen from any angle.
Skeletal Drawing.com is a fantastic gallery of dinosaur skeletons. There are even a few images of dinosaur musculature, which isn't something you see very often.
Tetrapod Zoology is a very good zoology blog that you may find interesting.
You'll find lots of neat animal skeleton images if you browse through http://www.skullsunlimited.com/
http://www.nhc.ed.ac.uk/index.php?page=493 has some okay animal images and info to browse through.
http://geology.cwru.edu/~huwig/catalog/cenozoic.html is a somewhat interesting gallery of extinct mammals.
http://www.dkimages.com/discover/Hom...als/index.html is another decent gallery of animal images.
http://www.copyrightexpired.com/earl...s_cenozoic.htm is a downright awesome gallery of extinct animal skeletons. The page I linked to is mostly extinct mammals, but you can easily navigate away to find some dinosaurs and such.
And lasty, Wikipedia and Wikimedia commons are both great sources for animal references.

I'll put a few photos up of my Arabian I don't mind being used for reference. My point of putting this up is for a better understanding of expression, since the Arabian is a very expressive breed. These pictures are too skewed to be good for much else. Additionally, I'd love to know when they've been used, as she's my baby. ^.^
Color: Chestnut sabino (those main white parts) with rabicano (hard to spot in most photos, so don't worry about it).
Condition: Pasture/non-working condition
These are indoor scenes when she had been hosed down, also great for seeing muscles. The expressions are due to duct tape on the bit (don't ask....), not from pain (more like displeasure and curiosity). As you can also see, the reins are kept loose at all times, she is making the expression of her own accord so you can translate them to horses without bridles.
