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 #513: Noddy

There are four species of Noddy, dark-coloured members of the Tern Family. Most are characterised by their wedge-shaped, notched tail and pale foreheads. Like terns, they are masters of the air, with his narrow, tapering wings giving him a graceful appearance. He is a proficient fish  predator, skimming low and scooping it from the water. Noddy will often hunt near large predatory fish, which force the smaller fish up towards the surface.
