Today's theme in Sunday Stamps is Dinosaurs, Dragons, or Mythical Beasts. I thought I would have nothing to share, but then I remembered this stamp which I got a month ago:
This Hungarian stamp was issued on 3 September 2018, and belongs to a 6-stamps set entitled Prehistoric Animals - Dinosaurs. I have only got the Pneumatoraptor fodori.
From the Wikipedia:
The type species is Pneumatoraptor fodori, named for Géza Fodor, who provided funding for the dig. The genus name Pneumatoraptor refers to the pneumaticity of the bone, the hollow spaces that would have been filled with air sacs in life. The holotype specimen is identified by the catalogue number MTM V.2008.38.1. and housed at the Hungarian Natural History Museum in Budapest.
And only few days ago I received the four stamps depicting the fierce Tyrannosaurus Rex, issued by USPS on 29 August. It has been quite difficult to take a proper picture of these, because they are lenticular.
I like the prehistoric scenes in the Hungarian stamps, the first has just the right amount of disquiet.ReplyDelete
"disquiet" good description, Joy!ReplyDelete
the baby looks so cute.
I agree with the word disquiet.Delete
Dinosaurs never seems cute to me, sorry.
Pneumatoraptor makes me thing it is something you blow up. I would not have recognised T Rex from the USA stamps.ReplyDelete
Hopefully you'll never encounter a T. Rex... :DDelete
The US stamps are fun, however I like the Hungarian sheet more - it is a stunning scene.ReplyDelete
