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 #569: Partridge

The Patridge is a gamebird, halfway in size between the quail and the pheasant. There are various species, found naturally through Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. This fellow is a Red-legged Patridge. He leads a terrestrial existence, foraging for seeds and only taking flight when disturbed. Nests are build on the ground, and chicks are precocious, able to leave the nest within a few hours of hatching.
