Wild Animals by Country

This page shows wild animals ordered by country, from Australia to Zambia. You may have a particular interest in a specific type of wild animal, such as bats, big cats, bears, elephants, monkeys and apes, rabbits and hares, or whales, seals and dolphins. If so, please check out Wild animals by Theme. Reptiles and Amphibians have a separate page of their own, though you will some here, for example in Canada's 2006 Endangered Species set.

The stamps are postally used, apart from those described as CTO (cancelled with neat postmarks for collectors) or mint. The mint stamps are all unmounted.

I have more animal stamps than can be shown here. Please email me at alisonlever@yahoo.co.uk if you are looking for a particular stamp, or would just like to know what other animal stamps are available.

Ordering stamps:

To order stamps, just email me alisonlever @ yahoo.co.uk and let me know what you want. I'll answer as soon as possible. This may not be the same day, but you do get personal service, and I am happy to search for stamps on just about any theme. There are a lot more stamps in stock than is possible to show here, so it's worth asking about your particular interest.

Please allow £0.95 (95p) if you come from anywhere in Europe, and £1.50 if orders are to be sent elsewhere. The postage charge is the same however many stamps you buy. This means that it's cheaper to buy more than one stamp, because the cost of packaging and postage is less per stamp. This reflects the time spent ensuring that the stamps are packed so that they arrive to you safely - it takes about the same time for one stamp as for larger orders.

Your stamps will be sent as soon as I receive payment. You can return the stamps and obtain a refund if they are not what you expected. Paypal is preferred, though other forms of payment can be negotiated. Euros are welcome as well as pound sterling.

Please click here http://www.infopet.co.uk/pages/2011.html for books on animals.
