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.

#824: Weasel

The Least Weasel is the smallest in the mustelid Family, but he has the courage of a lion. Measuring no more than 260mm in length, he preys predominantly on rodents, although will also go after birds and even rabbits. Found naturally in Europe, North America and North Africa, Weasels have been introduced to many countries, mostly islands, including New Zealand.

Here's a Bridled Weasel I drew a few years ago. As you can see, they're stoatly different.
Or not...
