I think looking them up on wikipedia would be helpful since each entry gives you a little sidebar which shows the info you need. For example bear--

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Mammalia
Order: Carnivora
Family: Ursidae

As MrMistery already said, finding specie would be impossibly hard.

:shock:

spider: kingdom animallia, phyllum arthropoda, subphyllum chelicerata, class arachnoidea, order araneida
octopus: king. animallia, phyllum mollusca, subphyllum conchifera, class cephalopoda, subclass dibranchia, order octobrachia
millipede: phyllum arthropoda, subphyllum myriapoda, class diplopoda
leech: phyllum annelida, class hirudinea
snail: phyllum mollusca, subphyllum conchifera, class gastropoda, subclass for example pulmonata
ant: phyllum arthropoda, subphyllum hexapoda, class insecta, order hymenoptera

Im really exhausted. Someone will continue or maybe i will, but not everything i know.
You cannot say for example family for spider if you do not know species and yeat every animal belongs to kingdom animallia (but you want probably deeper clasification :D )
