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 #585: Philippines Eagle

The Philippines Eagle is one of the largest living eagles, comparable only to the Harpy Eagle. She is endemic to the Philippines, where she can be found on four of the islands. Each breeding pair requires a large plot of land upon which to nest, and she has been heavily affected by deforestation. Now only between 180-500 birds remain and she is classified as Critically Endangered. Sometimes known as the "monkey-eating eagle" she is in fact an opportunistic predator who will eat almost anything she can catch: monkeys, birds, colugo, bats, reptiles and even small pigs. She is a sit-and-wait predator, sometimes moving perches as she scans the canopy around her for appropriate prey.

Once again, she is in black and white for YOU to colour. My coloured version is here:
