Thanks for those new contributions to the thread! Here is my latest one - this one from Uganda, their 2017 issue of primates of Uganda. Uganda, like Tanzania, is more modest in its new issues compared to some other African countries (Niger, Nigeria, Mozambique, Togo) in that there is not such an enormous number each and every year, attractive though as ome of them are (I'll keep some of those up my sleeve for later posts).



The series gives a marvellous overview of the diversity of Uganda's primates, from the great apes to bushbabies.

Baboons, an airmail stamp designed by C. Bozzoli, printed by lithography (Impressor S.A. Switzerland), and issued by Burkina Faso on July 19, 1984 as one of a set of six stamps commemorating Rotary International, Scott No. 658. Bonus: Cogwheel. Note: Although the baboons on this stamp are identified as yellow baboons (Papio cynocephalus), I believe they may actually olive baboons (Papio anubis), since olive baboons are indigenous to Burkina Faso, whereas yellow baboons are not.

Thanks KuoL! I don't think there have been any of the limited edition, self-adhesive local post stamps issued by Canada yet in this thread; over the years, there have been a number of apes, monkeys and lemurs among these. Here are two issued this year:




and:




the first is a baboon, probably a chacma (Papio ursinus); the second, of a white-handed gibbon (Hylobates lar).
