Description

Most wild animals usually try to avoid being seen by humans, and may be difficult to sight because of nocturnal habits. But with a little practice, interested observers can learn to recognize signs of their presence. The beaver, long a symbol of Canadian industry, significantly alters its habitat by building dams and burrows. Its large webbed hind feet of about 6" long leave a distinctive print you may see, although the beaver himself may be swimming underwater or hiding in its watery burrow. Gottschalk + Ash International in Toronto designed these new low-value definitive stamps. The graphic style depicts these small mammals on a split, textured background suggestive of the animals' environment. The colours on the stamps were chosen to be realistic, and yet to allow each stamp to be easily distinguishable.
