Ireland has plenty of red squirrels in woodland areas (I hope the American grey squirrel hasn't yet become an invasive species). Note both Irish languages; 2011

A cancellation with a squirrel mailing a letter for the philatelic exhibit in Löhne, Germany, which featured a section for children: "Collecting is Fun"!

Taiwan's first lunar rat stamp, 1971.12.1.

It's interesting that they use squirrel because at the time of issue, Taiwan was launching a campaign to eliminate rats. While in Chinese, squirrel is call Song Shu, which directly translates into Pine Rat, and can be regarded as a kind of rat! :-)

The Belgian artist Andre Buzin has created many beautiful stamp motifs featuring animals and plants. His work issued in 2015 is a large sheet of stamps showing animals in motion - the European red squirrel is among them. (I was privileged to meet the artist at Birdpex in Brussels.)

A very alert European red squirrel on the ground. 2015 (Unfortunately the print is a bit grainy.)

These two friends meeting on the forest floor were pictured on a Canadian stamp although neither of them are native to Canada: Eurasian Red Squirrel and European Hedgehog. A "personalized stamp", perhaps designed by someone who had met the two animals, 2015

A dark Eurasian red squirrel was featured in the Romanian stamp for the EUROPA year of forests in 2011. It's a mixed forest and the squirrel is sitting on an evergreen; pine and spruce seeds are favorite food.

(Idebee, It looks like the chipmunk is eating, or just smelling at?, a fish burger! Do Chinese chipmunks do that? or is there a hidden meaning?)

Hi, Kris, good question, you remind me and I did a little check to see if there is some hidden meaning. It turns out to be that the postmark design combines two stamps' image. There is no further explanation for the implication of the design, but I think it's just for fun . Both of the stamps are definitive, the chipmunk one is used domestically, and the sushi one is used for overseas season greeting mail.
