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 #420: Leopard Cat

The Leopard Cat is a small feline of South and East Asia, named for his spots.Twelve subspecies occur, including the Critically Endangered Iriomote Cat. Like most felids, they are solitary in nature, nocturnal and hunt both on the ground and in the trees. A high percentage of his diet are birds and thus he does not play with his food, instead dispatching it with a pounce and bite. These Cats have been hybridised with domestic cats to produce the Bengal Cat breed.
