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.

#768: Trout

Trout are several species of common freshwater fish, closely related to salmon and charr. They favour cool, clear freshwater lakes and streams and are native to Eurasia and America. Several species - specifically the rainbow and the brown - are popular in recreational fishing and have been introduced to Australia and New Zealand. Predatory in nature, Trout hunt invertebrates and smaller fish, proving to have anegative impact on native fish to the areas in which they've been introduced.
