Here is an image of a stamp depicting a rather confident-looking Alpine ibex (Capra ibex), a species of wild goat that lives in the mountains of the European Alps, designed by Hungarian artist László Kékesi (1919-1993), printed by photogravure, and issued by Hungary on February 24, 1961 as one of a set of ten stamps publicizing the Budapest Zoo, Scott No. 1352, SG No. 1721.

Saw a herd of deer down the road this morning. Couldn't convince them to climb onto my scanner.

Here in Canada we seem to have lots of critters with hooves and things sticking out of their heads.

One of 12 from the 1919 Trail of the Caribou set from Newfoundland



...ok, I know, the moose and caribou have antlers and not horns. But they do have hooves, so I'm half right.

I suppose if they had horns, so many people in Newfoundland wouldn't hit them every year.

The barasingha or Swamp deer (Cervus duvauceli) is currently found in isolated localities in north and central India, and in southwestern Nepal. The most striking feature of a barasingha is its antlers, with 10 to 14 tines on a mature stag. Here is an image of a stamp depicting an alert barasingha, printed by lithogravure, and issued by Nepal on July 17, 1975, Scott No. 305.

1993 South Africa (Suid Afrika in Afrikaans) stamp showing a Black Rhino (rhinoceros) (Diceros bicornis).

The name Black Rhinoceros was chosen to distinguish this species from the White Rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum). This can be confusing, as those two species are not really distinguishable by color. The Black Rhino is much smaller than the White Rhino, and has a pointed mouth, which they use to grasp leaves and twigs when feeding.



This must be one of the first non-denominated stamps (standardised Mail).

Oh deer! (er, antelope)



Must be the mild weather lately. Saw another herd of deer this morning, and one driving home tonight. The place is crawling with 'em.

...I was driving home, not the deer.
