    Saw someone asking about evolution and creature design the other day somewhere on CA which got me thinking about my previous academic occupation, Biology =). So here's a big ol' list of wikipedia links of various topics dealing with critters.

    A lot of the wiki articles will have multiple subtopics/links on them and usually some general examples associated with the classification for ease of use.

    Anatomical Terms of Location
    Anatomical Terms of Motion
    Animal Locomotion (this has multiple subgroups including flight/swimming/terrestrial)

    Stimulus Responses
    Taxis
    Tropism
    Kinesis
    (all of these have multiple subgroups, interesting reads)

    --Vertebrates

    -Tetrapods - Vertebrate, 4 Legged/Apendages
    --Tetrapod Subgroups--
    Amphibians
    Reptiles
    Mammals
    Birds

    -Fish
    --Fish Subgroups--
    Jawless Fish
    Armoured Fish
    Cartilage Fish (Sharks/Rays)
    Ray-finned Fish

    --Invertebrates

    Insects, Crustaceans, Arachnids
    Squid, Snails, Bivalves
    Comb Jellies
    Jellyfish, Coral, Sea Anemones, Hydras
    Sponges
    Starfish, Sea Urchin

    I found a most excellent fish skeleton reference page. There's a huge variety, and the images are very high quality. There may even be skeletons of other kinds of animals on this site, but I haven't explored beyond the fish page yet.

    Helter Skeletons

    A sample .

    No anatomy I'm afraid, but a great close up video of a coyote trying to attack a man. Good quality and you can see it from pretty much any angle.

    True progress means matching the world to the vision in our heads.
    But we always change the vision instead.

    /\He seems to have a slightly bemused expression

    My fella took some pictures of his Creobroter Gemmatus Praying Mantis. This is in it's first 3 stages. They are fascinating creatures I love watching how they move they're so cute.
