My teacher mentioned that some plants and animals have RNA as genetic material but did not substantiate his statement with examples. I'm wondering if it is so? I have searched the internet but have found no such information.

There are no animals or plants with RNA genomes. There was a mistaken belief in the 1920s that plant genetic material was RNA whereas animals had DNA, but this was finally disproved by JN Davidson in the 1940s.
