Yep. It's six of the eight Great Houses, plus Targaryen (dragon, former rulers of all of Westeros): Arryn (falcon, the Vale), Baratheon (stag, Stormlands), Stark (direwolf, the North), Greyjoy (kraken, Iron Islands), Lannister (lion, Westerlands), and Tully (trout, Riverlands).
I'm assuming Martell (sun-and-spear, Dorne) and Tyrell (rose, the Reach) were left out because their sigils don't feature an animal.
House Mallister does have an eagle as their sigil, but they're part of the Riverlands under House Tully (well, before the Red Wedding anyway).
Fun fact: there are Seven Kingdoms yet eight Great Houses because the Iron Islands and the Riverlands used to be ruled jointly as the Kingdom of the Isles and Rivers, but the Targaryens split them up when they conquered the area and wiped out their ruling family.
Because I clearly have too much time on my hands and the kind of brain that remembers totally useless information better than things like birthdays and when my library books are due, I can also list all their House words! :D
Targaryen: Fire and Blood
Arryn: As High as Honor
Baratheon: Ours Is the Fury
Stark: Winter Is Coming
Greyjoy: We Do Not Sow
Lannister: Hear Me Roar!
Tully: Family, Duty, Honor
Martell: Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Tyrell: Growing Strong
