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.

#761: Titi

Titi are New World Monkeys, notable for their tails, which are longer than their body. There are numerous species known, varying in colouration and size, but all sharing similar body shapes. Titi live in family groups of up to seven individuals. They maintain and defend their territory, shouting and chasing off intruders.  Partnerships are monogamous, and pairs will often sit or sleep with their tails entwined. The father takes charge of their sole offspring, bringing it to the mother for nursing.
