List of some cool animals I can use for a project?

I don't need to have access to them, I just need to be able to be able to research them. Please give me INTERESTING ones that won't be boring (i.e. house cat, common toad, etc.) And please list some vertebrates and some invertebrates (if you can, but I need both so I'd prefer you do both).
Update: Can't be extinct
