Traylor drew animals more than any other subject. He depicted farm animals from his memory as well as domestic animals like dogs and cats that he knew from the farm or saw on the streets of Montgomery. Exotic animals like leopards, elephants, and camels, which Traylor probably saw on circus posters or in commercial advertisements, also occur in his work. Through minimal depiction of form and color, Traylor conveys the inherent qualities of each animal.
