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.

#665: Roseate Spoonbill

The beautiful Roseate Spoonbill makes his home in South America, Central America and the US's Gulf Coast. His pink colouration is derived from his food, and can range from a pale pink to a bright magenta. His bare green head acquires a golden tint during breeding season. His distinctive bill is used to sift through mud, straining out the dirt and water, leaving him with mouthfuls of crustaceans, frogs, insect larvae and small fish.
