There are many threads in this forum about animals but they are all about a specific animal or group of animals (Horse, elephant, frogs, small mammals, animals with horns etc.). So, I thought I would start this thread for collectors who want to show their complete set of animals or to show animals that don't match any of the threads.

Let's start with a set of 12 stamps of African wild animals, issued by Mauritania on July 6, 1963:

Striped Hyena (Hyaena hyaena), designed and engraved by Claude Durrens:

Spotted Hyena (Crocuta crocuta), designed and engraved by Claude Hertenberger:

Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus), designed and engraved by Claude Durrens:

Guinea Baboons (Papio papio), designed and engraved by Claude Hertenberger:

Camel (Camelus dromedarius), designed and engraved by Claude Hertenberger:

Leopard (Panthera pardus), designed and engraved by Claude Hertenberger:
