National Geographic, an excellent resource for educators, has a wonderful site with Animal Facts that I learned about from Mary Beth Hertz (@mbteach) (who is a great educator and resource for other educators).
Animal Facts is a collection of facts and information on all kinds of animals. It is arranged by type of animal: amphibian, bird, fish, etc. On the right side of the page is a listing of animals alphabetically.
Each animal page has photos, resources, fast facts, and a map of where their habitat is.
Here's the page for Giant Squid:
You can also quickly share each page via Facebook, Twitter, Buzz, Stumble upon, and email making it easier to share with your students.
It's a great resource for teachers and students.
