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).

Thanks Nethryk - time to add some more apes or monkeys, after a break. Vietnam is home to some of the world's rarest primates - most people know about mountain gorillas and orang-utans as endangered species but who has hard of the Tonkin snub-nosed monkey or the Cat Ba white headed langur? Yet especially the latter which occurs only on one small island numbers fewer than 100.





This is an FDC with issues in honour of the International Primate Society's Congress in Hanoi and shows the Tonkin snub-nosed monkey on the left; next to it, the Cat Ba langur, followed by the grey-shanked douc; second row, cancels and cachet, Francois' langur.




The second FDC shows the accompanying MS, with the Easter black-crested gibbon, long-thought to be extinct until a small population was duscovered some 10 years ago. There may be fewer than 40 animals left ...

On August 15, 1989 Japan issued this Oita Prefecture stamp (Sc #Z10) in recognition of "Mt. Takasaki Monket Reserve" near Oita. Stamp depicts a cartoonish macaque.

From the Japan Visitor website, "The whole mountain is a nature sanctuary protecting one of Japan's largest populations of perfectly wild Japanese Macaque monkeys. There, the monkeys rule."

The endangered Bornean orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus) is depicted on this 1993 stamp of Singapore.

From Wikipedia, "The Bornean orangutan is a species of orangutan native to the island of Borneo. Together with the Sumatran orangutan and Tapanuli orangutan, it belongs to the only genus of great apes native to Asia.

Here is an image of an airmail stamp depicting a mandrill (Mandrillus sphinx), designed by W. Spinner, printed by lithography, and issued* by Central African Republic on January 22, 1982 as one of a set of six indigenous animals stamps, Scott No. C263. *Note: Impressor SA of Syens, Switzerland, supplied stamps free of charge to several client postal administrations in return for having the right to print as many stamps as it thought it could sell to philatelists, and also the right to print as many issues, on any subject, that it thought fit. This arrangement led to the huge quantity of stamps issued by some of these countries during the 1970s and 80s, and in particular, Central African Republic.

Thanks for the new additions, and Nethryk, as always, for the interesting information. Interesting that some African countries have bartered away their control over who prints and how many are printed ...
OTOH, some countries do not and some of their issues can be very expensive.

For instance, this set 2018 of 3 from Gambia has a Michel catalog value of 500 euro. For that expensive a set, you would have thought they could have got the baboon's scientific name right (no such thing as a 'papiocrocuta' = 'baboonhyena'). Moreover Gambia's baboon would be the guines baboon ...
