Australia’s Wild and Furry on stamps-2

17 Apr 2018  Tue

Animals, especially their young ones, are always fun to observe, be it in safaris or in documentaries or even on stamps! In 2001, Australia Post issued a set of 6 commemorative stamps featuring cartoons of “Wild Babies”. These stamps filled with cakes, sweets and cute baby animals depict a birthday party of Kevin, the koala bear!

It’s a fun way to learn about Australian wildlife and at the same time enjoy the perks of collecting stamps! Last time we saw a few of these stamps. Now let’s see the other Australian wild and furry babies :

Awesome Possums: Ring-tailed possums which are common to Australian urban areas are featured on a 45c commemorative stamp. The stamp depicts adorable cute ring-tailed baby possums feasting on treats while a ring-tailed possum with a baby clinging to her back swings down to join the party!

Babbling Bilbies: Bilbies, or rabbit-bandicoots, are desert-dwelling marsupial omnivores found mostly in Australia. Here we see a group of excited young bilbies crowded around gifts watched by an emu and a crocodile, while a young koala is seen free-falling in the background. Such cute stamps these are! More importantly, we got acquainted with so many of these wild animals from the “Down Under”! Do you collect stamps? We have these babies for sale! You can buy them here: Aystralian Wild Babies Stamps.

Happy Collecting!
