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.

#774: Turkey

The Turkey is a large gamebird native to North America. He lives in hardwood and mixed hardwood forests with good leaf cover. His diet consists mainly of seeds and plant matter, but he will also eat small vertebrates and insects. The male, much larger and bulkier than the female, struts to attract a mate, puffing out his feathers and gobbling and booming. He mates with as many females as he can and plays no role in the raising of the chicks. Turkey has become a staple in the human diet, and domesticated Turkeys are farmed throughout the world.
