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 #581: Perrier Sifaka

The Perriers Sifaka was once considered a sub-species of Diademed Sifaka. He is Critically Endangered, with the entire population consisting of an estimated 500 individuals and limited to a small area of northern Madagascar. His diet is somewhat versatile (for an eastern Sifaka), consisting of fruit and seeds during the wet season, and leaves during the dry. Groups consist of 2-6 individuals. Infant mortality is high and breeding is slow, making the future of this species uncertain.
