island mammals

This pine marten is only found on the island of Newfoundland, one of only 14 native mammals on the island.   They are about the size of a small housecat and weigh between 1.6lbs to 2.4lbs.
The ring tailed lemur is only found on the island of Madagascar. Unlike the marten, these lemurs are very social and live in groups of up to 30. Both are listed as endangered.

For Sunday Stamps - small animals

The colours of the second stamp make it perfect. I have never seen any of this animals in real live.

My very small animals are here.

I've seen a pine martin in France but alas I don't think I'll make Madagascar to see those wonderful lemur. Great stamp.
