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.

#845: Woolly Monkey

There are four species of Woolly Monkey, found in South America. Troops can number between 10 and 45 individuals, sometimes even more. However, they do tend to split into smaller groups for foraging. Fruit forms the staple part of her diet, although leaves and seeds are eaten in leaner times.  Woolly Monkeys live in the canopy of cloud forests. Her strong tail is prehensile, and can easily hold her weight, helping her to navigate the arboreal environment. She is hunted by eagles, jaguar and humans.
