Hello Kuol and Kris:

Thanks for the new apes! Kris, the 2016 Hungary zoo sheet has another monkey, a baby Javan lutung, second from left at the top:



This is an endangered species where animals are either black or ornage in colour ; the infnats are almost neon orange!

Thanks bookbndrbob!

Here is one of the first 2020 Primates/Monkeys issues from the usual Africn countries, Sao Tome and Principe:




The first shows a colobus, the spectacular guereza from East Africa and Ethiopia, with a side show of Sumatran ornag-utan baby, and rhesus monkeys; the accompanying issue has the common squirrel monkey, white-handed gibbon, rhesus monkey, and emperor tamarin.

Not unattractive, and as a monkey collector, I do get them and other such African issues since these days, they are much nicer than some older issues (talking of illustrations in colour rather than photos).

On October 2, 1996 Mexico issued a sheet of 24 different large stamps making up a panoramic view of a forested area with birds and animals. This sheet promotes the protection of the "Selva Humeda" and its wildlife. Selva Humeda includes the Yucatan Peninsula and the southern coast of the Gulf of Mexico. One of the stamps (Sc #2571) in the sheet includes a depiction of a Mexican howler monkey.

From Wikipedia, "The Mexican howler monkey (Alouatta palliata mexicana) is a subspecies of the mantled howler. This subspecies is found predominately in forests between south eastern Mexico and north eastern Peru...It is now located only in patches of forestry within these regions because loss of habitat has been so extensive."

10 pf. orangutan
20 pf. colobus monkey
