Greetings friends!

When it comes to prehistoric animals, the first thing that comes to mind. these are dinosaurs, carnivores and herbivores, waterfowl and flying.

But, a series of postage stamps Prehistoric Animals, issued on the island of Cuba in 1982, shows us another world of extinct animals, which, according to paleontologists, was an intermediate world between the world of dinosaurs and the world that we see today.

On a postage stamp with a face value of 5 Cuban centavos, we see Cuban Crocodyle (Crocodylus rhombifer), which differs little from the crocodiles we are accustomed to.

I would like to replace this postage stamp with a stamp in better condition.

As you can see. several prongs of this postage stamp are damaged.

Let's take a look at this postage stamp.

For my publications, I do not use stock photographs, it is fundamentally important for me to use photographs that I have made with my own hands for publication and I can name them - authorial work.
