Here are two more examples of a large number of recent issues by African countries showing their wildlife - I have already mentioned Togo, check them out if you collect wildlife stamps! These are from Uganda (no numbers as yet)

Thanks for the new pictures,fellow primates!

Here are some more new issues from Mozambique:







And my apolgies if I posted the following earlier - they are not paes, but certainly, primates - the tarsiers. What I like about these issues is that they include some very rare species, some critically endangered.







There are also a whole lot of new issues from Guinea, some with apes and monkeys. I'll post them shortly.

Apologies to the original scanner, Dopplemeier, for using the last two scans - I didnot realize I still needed to do those (I often paste in a picture in my records until I can have a good scan). OTOH, I can recommend this seller whom I have always found reliable and reasonable in prices, with prompt despatch of orders.
