Unknown Fish 1 should be a unicornfish of some sort (I don't remember the name but I made a topic for it already), Unknown Fish 2 is a sailfin tang (also made a topic for it).

I can help you with the butterflies.

The first one looks like a type of tiger butterfly. I've seen them before but I don't have a confirmed species ID.

The second and third ones are mormon butterflies. I believe both are great mormons.

The forth unknown butterfly is a blue and white longwing.

The bug from the history museum is a Malaysian Walkingstick

Brookfield :

1 - Seems like a Schmidt's Spot-Nosed Guenon
2 - Def Wattled Curassow
3 - Anthonys poison-arrow frog perhaps ?
7 - Either Peach-throated or a weirdly colored Emerald tree monitor , but peach-throated seems more plausible .

unknown lizard 5 Egyptian uromastyx (Uromastyx aegyptia)
unknown lizard 4 mangrove monitor (?) (Varanus indicus)

Those are Galapagos, they were born there a couple of years ago. The other tortoise is an Egyptian. I'm 90% sure that our Porcupinefish in Wild Reef is a Spot-Fin. The green lizard is probably an Emerald Tree Monitor. I think that the frog is a Smokey Jungle.

One look at the unknown puffer from Shedd Aquarium tells me it's definitely a Spotfin porcupinefish (Diodon hystrix). I see these all the time when I'm snorkeling, and I'm pretty sure that's the Caribbean Reef tank so it would make sense. I know Shedd Aquarium also has a Congo puffer, but Congos are very different.
