America's First National Park
On the postcard: Old Faithful (Upper Geyser Basin), Lower Falls (Gran Canyon of the Yellowstone) and Grand Prismatic Spring. Plus, some extra information on the back:
With more than 10,000 hydrothermal features with its boundaries, Yellowstone National Park has more natural hot springs, geysers, mud pots and steam vents than any other place in the world. Yellowstone sits on an active volcano which erupted 640,000 years ago and may very well erupt again in the near future. Yellowstone was made the first national park in 1872.

The Banana Slug (Ariolimax columbians) gets its' name from its' bright yellow colour. Found in the damp, foggy coastal forests of the Pacific Northwest, banana slugs eats vegetation thus speeding up the decomposition and soil building process.
The Armadillo is found through Texas. One of the many oddities is tha all the young in each litter are of the same sex.
