Australia’s Wild and Furry on stamps-3

24 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 last two remaining Australian wild and furry babies :

Wobbling Wombats: Wombats are short-legged, muscular quadrupedal marsupials who are native to Australia. Wombats are ground-dwelling animals and efficient burrowers. These little balls of fur are seen depicted on a 45c stamp where a mama wombat is happily watching its joey climb a ladder.

Jumping Joeys: On this stamp we see a leaping mother wallaby, joey in pouch, encouraging her young wallaby as he climbs the ladder. Beside her, an echidna urges her baby on as he clings to the ladder beside a little platypus! What a party it must be!

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!
