I think it's safe to say that I will never forget the Vietnamese word for "firefly."

the classifier 'con' I think is more than just animals. It is like for anything that moves. For example road, wave, river etc

Why is there con in this sentance

Con is the classifier for animals. When you say about a specific animal individual or count them, you need to use con. E.g: Tôi có một con cá (I have a fish); Một con đom đóm và một con ong (A firefly and a bee); etc.
