For some reason I got curious about giraffe and elephant art on postage stamps and started googling around looking for what existed. It turns out that just about any cool animal that you can imagine probably has a postage stamp dedicated to it (okay, probably not everything - I haven't looked for tenrec stamps yet). The next thing I knew I was hunting for Loxodonta cyclotis stamps from Gabon (issued in 1988) and a 1937 giraffe stamp from Mozambique (inspiration for the cover art for the first #1 Ladies Detective Agency). After finding the stamps on Ebay I found myself opening an Ebay account and starting a stamp collection that I didn't really intend to start. Now I find myself coveting a 40 cent giant squid stamp from New Zealand that I can't seem to find anywhere, and seriously considering buying a colossal squid stamp from the South Georgia Islands. Is anybody else here into wildlife postage stamp collecting? If so, is there any known cure for breaking the addiction?
