  Natural History Museum UK:
  This is also an incredible site - if you go into the 'Texts' section of the page, you can search for specific titles or by topics. They have entire books archived that you can download in .pdf format or a number of others. It's an awesome site for any reference. I've gotten a couple of Bridgman's books from here. Just search for animal anatomy or something like that.:
  Some good animal pics (free for non-commercial use):
  [Animal Photos]( 
  Some links for  animal reference from the San Diego Zoo and from some other sites:

Lots of animal reference:
