Modern Animals

http://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page
A site that is like a grown-up version of ours. It only has real species so nothing quite as interesting as what you can come up with. Another source of images.

http://www.eol.org/
The Encyclopedia of Life

http://www.catalogueoflife.org/search.php Just as it says, it is a catalogue of life. An excellent source for scientific names and classification information.

Fossil Animals

http://www.teachers.ash.org.au/jmresources/fossils/links.html
A link site with links to many sites about... fossils.

http://www.sciencedaily.com/news/fossils_ruins/early_mammals/
Great resource about recent discoveries

http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich.edu/
The site we used in year 7. Contains all the classification stuff so we do not need to figure it ourselves. Also provides info about the animals. :D.
