I can laugh at my confusion between left and right at this stage of life (retired) but in grade six at school and not being able to read, it was quite traumatic.

Here are images of a couple of stamps depicting a Crabeater seal (Lobodon carcinophagus), designed and engraved by Claude Andréotto, and issued for use in French Southern and Antarctic Territories on January 1, 1984, Scott Nos. 107 & 110. Note: Ironically, crabeater seals do not eat crabs (there are no crabs in Antarctic waters), but they consume more krill (shrimp-like crustaceans) than any other species.

That church is quite something... and I wonder if the stamp with the pink dolphins is accurate!
