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.

815: Wallaby

Wallabies are small-to-medium sized macropods, found in Australia. Their long legs are used to propel  themselves along at high speed and at great height. This fellow is an Agile Wallaby of Northern Australia. She is common and wisdespread, found in dry woodlands and open grassland. Although she often forages alone, she will gather with others in open areas. Here the increased numbers of eyes make it dificult for predators to come close.
