Mint Stamps Showcase Wonders of the Ocean
Explore the beauty of the ocean from the comfort home! This vibrant mint sheet pictures several sea creatures in their natural habitat. Just look at some of the interesting creatures on this sheet:
• Bottlenose dolphins hunt their prey using echolocation, which is similar to a ship’s sonar. Bottlenose dolphins make up to 1,000 clicking noises per second, which travel underwater until reaching an object. The sound is then bounced back to the dolphins, relaying the prey’s location, size, and shape.
• Killer whale – Despite being called a killer whale, Orca are the largest members of the dolphin family. They often live 60 years or more, although less in captivity. Orcas live all over the world, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, and in all oceans.
• Spinner dolphins are known for their acrobatic leaps. As they rise through the air, they spin their bodies. Some are skillful enough to make five rotations before splashing back into the water.
• The ocean sunfish is one of the heaviest bony fish in the world, weighing between 545 and 2,205 pounds.
The sheet also pictures the Caribbean reef shark, butterfly fish, short fin pilot whale, moray eel, trigger fish, and red lobster. Add the mystery and beauty of the ocean to your collection – order your mint sheet now.
