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 #594: Pitta

The Pitta are a Family of Passerines found in tropical Australia and Asia. Terrestrial in nature, he spends his days foraging on the forest floor, feeding on invertebrates such as snails and insects. There are numerous species - this is a Malayan Banded Pitta - and most are brightly coloured. Despite this, they are actually extremely hard to see in the dim light of their rainforest home.
