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

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.
