“Do Something Wild – Collect Stamps!” was the Postal Service’s 1992 theme for National Stamp Collecting Month.  To kick off the event, a booklet of Wild Animal Stamps was issued, featuring five of nature’s most-beloved creatures.

The giraffe is the tallest of all animals.  An adult male can be as tall as 18 feet, and although the average giraffe’s neck is over 6 feet long, it has the same seven neckbones as other mammals.
 
The giant panda is found mainly in the mountains of China and Tibet. Up until the mid-1800s, this elusive creature was only considered a myth.
 
The flamingo’s long, curving neck and bright pink feathers make it one of the most recognizable birds.  These distinctive creatures live in large colonies and can be found wild in southern Florida.
 
King penguins are the second-largest species of penguins.  These amusing black and white birds make their home in the Antarctic, where they frolic on snow-covered tundras.
 
A distinct race of tigers, the white Bengal tiger can be distinguished by the color pattern of its coat.  About 5,000 of them survive today and can be found in the dense jungles of eastern India and Bangladesh.
