I had to search quite hard to find some sea creatures to show for this week's theme, but was surprised by what I found.
|Canada - Bowhead Whale|
The bowhead whale (Balaena mysticetus) is a baleen whale of the right whale family. It is an endangered species which can grow to 20m in length; the thick bodied species can weight 75 tonnes. It is also know as the Greenland right whale or Arctic whale. It also appears on a stamp from the Faröe Islands.
|Norway - Blekksprut|
The Blekksprut (Sepiola atlantica) is a species of bobtail squid found in the North East Atlantic Ocean from Iceland, the Faröes and western Norway to the Moroccan coast.
|Greece - Dolphin Mosaic - 1970|
This stamp is from the Greek Mosaics issue and shows a Dolphin Mosaic from Delos island, 110 BC. Now how do I find out who the rider is?
For more sea creatures take a ride across to Viridian's Sunday-stamps-128.
