About the Project

The ZooTrophy Animal-a-Day project began on October 15th, 2013 as illustrator Angela "LemurKat" Oliver began working her way, systematically but selectively, through the alphabet and presenting, via social media, an illustrated animal to the world. Daily.

All pieces are drawn as 2.5 x 3.5 inch collectible cards, using a combination of polychromos and prismacolor pencils, along with other art materials. Many are still available for purchase ($10) or trade, so drop her an email if anything captures your eye or if there is an animal you wish to request.

It is predicted this project will take her at least two years to complete - with approximately 36 animals being drawn for each letter. She has also used the images to create a collectible hardback encyclopedia series, playing cards and a desk calendar, as well as the ZooTrophy collectible trading card game.

Creature Feature #381: Kingsnake

There are five species, and numerous subspecies, of Kingsnake, all of which are found in North America. Although they resemble the highly venomous coral snake, Kingsnakes kill by constricting, not poison. This is a Scarlet Kingsnake. Kingsnake feed on lizards, rodents, birds and eggs, but are also noted for preying on other snakes - including their venomous relatives. She is immune to the venom of a rattlesnake.
