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 #427: Lizardfish

The Lizardfish are several species of bony fish, found in shallow coastal waters. He is generally small - although the largest species can grow up to 60 cm - and his head superficially resembles a lizard. An ambush predator, he buries himself in the substrate so that only his eyes are visible, and waits for prey to swim past. He is equipped with many teeth, which even grow upon his tongue.
