If anyone has some time could they take a closer look at these three stamps in their collections,
These images have been taken from the Australian Visual Cataloge Wiki

Is that a Kangaroo on the right ?
Image

Are there any kangaroos on the bank in the background of this one ?
Image

Is that a Kangaroo sitting under the tree ?
Image


Today, I've found 2 more thanks to the Wiki.
I have looked through books and cataloges and thought I had all the Aussie Roos.
These two had slipped past me till I saw them on screen
Image Image


What started as "Kangaroos featured on stamps" has well and truely turned into any kangaroo anywhere in the stamp !
Soon I'll be collecting Bush scenes because there would have been a kangaroo there but he hopped away before the artist painted him :lol: :lol:

Uh oh - I think I'm getting obsessive
Will stampboards pay for councelling ? :lol:

Then here's another thought...bush scenes where a kangaroo might come along :lol: I think I've been reading Stampboards too long :?

Iomoons catalogue is absolutely great Skippy and there is nowhere to post about it. I don't want to interupt his thread so maybe this might be the thread needed to discuss anything about it? :wink:

Sorry to Dispute your Findings Skippy.But the way i see it is this.

40c living together shows Waroff trying to start his Mower. :lol:

$1.00. has the coast dotted with tree stumps,after THe Decision to Settle was made. :shock:

35c Xmas I think is a "Wobbly" :?

95c shows a Giant Rat waiting for a Handout, :?

$1.00.Does show a Dead Roo,that has just been run over by a B,Double :(

Vegetarians and animal lovers please do not read on!!!

Talk about spotting Roos, almost every day I drive outside our country town I see dead Kangaroos killed by cars/trucks. A local council employee is paid to remove them. (I even ran into a emu doing 100km ( 60 miles) an hour recently and had the feathers stuck under the bonnet to prove it ) . Yet I still love the Australian stamps with Roos. They are special !!!.

This could be a special thematic topic. I wonder how many other countries have issued stamps featuring australaim kangaroos ?

Hi Lawrence,

Poor road kill Roos :( Problem is they run towards the cars don't they !
I have raised a few orphan joeys years ago when we lived out west for a short time.
And we lived next door to a roo shooter ! He was not impressed that I had a couple of Joeys in our backyard, it was a funny situation at the time.

There are quite a few kangaroos on stamps other than Australia, Well, enough for a little collection anyway
I have a few examples in my "wanted" thread

Some are from a set of Zoo stamps, others have to do with Ausipex or the Bicentennary
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=6892

Thanks a lot skippy, the Roo shooter next door was only thinking about the dollars he would miss out on, or guilt.

No complaints from me, it is a great catalogue ! Actually all the various Wiki threads are facinating to browse and a great resource is being built up there, thanks to the hard work of those contributing and editing.

Hi Skippy,

This stamp, and another Roo shown below : is part of the MegaFauna set issued on the 1st October 2008.

I have scanned details of the set from the AP Stamp Bulletin, no. 294 (sept-oct)

I think the first Kangaroo to appear on a stamp was in the 1889 with the NSW 1/- Maroon. The first native fauna to appear was the Platypus on an 1880 TASMANIAN REVENUE.

I am really sorry for delay in reporting to your query "Why didn't I swerve to miss him ( the emu)". The emu was not on the road as I aprocahed. A FRACTION of second before I hit him with his my car the emu turned around ( I saw him a few metres off the side of the road) and ran across the road in front of my car. Even a swerve would have collected the emu . They are tough, he stumbled and kept going across the road to the forest on the other side of the road.

There is also a Roo on the Centenary NSW Captain Cook Fourpence, but I don't know if that was issued before or after the 1/- (doesn't say in my basic catalogue :( )

Ah, the first day cover for which this postmark was designed is here - http://www.philstampcovers.co.uk/prodde ... 187-PSC188

[OT: Note for those interested, Royal Mail have three FD postmarks for each issue. But they also have a system by which anybody, or any organisation, can apply to have a handstamp created for any event - stamp issue or not - for a fee of about £200. You need to sell a few FDCs to recover that cost, which accounts for the sometimes high initial cost of some GB FDCs. That Phil Stamp cover was £15 for a face value of about £3, but you have to factor in all the costs - artwork, printing, website, etc, and they sell.]

No a bird is a bird, depends on your definition of an animal. OK further refinement non-aviforme.

A bird (swan) is an animal :D

But it's not a mammal

I'll accept the first Australian Native Mammal depicted on a stamp was the Platypus.
By the way, Thanks for pointing that out waroff, I assumed the kangaroo was the first.

cheers,
Skippy

My last redefinition of non-aviforme cuts out birds.

yes true, But... it doesn't cut out reptiles, fish or insects (and sea sponges but I can't think of their classification) which are also animals along with birds and mammals.

If you classify everything into the three categories, all animals are minerals and all plants are minerals because without minerals none of them exist. Your turn.

You got me on that one

Animal /Vegetable /Mineral is too rigid a classification and only useful for 20 question games.

Animal Classification is divided into 7 main catagories, and Birds and Mammals belong to the same Kingdom and Phylum, but differentiate at the Class level.

Platypus
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Mammalia
Subclass: Prototheria
Order: Monotremata
Family: Ornithorhynchidae
Genus: Ornithorhynchus
Species: anatinus
Binomial name
Ornithorhynchus anatinus

Black Swan
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Anseriformes
Family: Anatidae
Genus: Cygnus
Species: C. atratus
Binomial name
Cygnus atratus

Other than that I've got nothing to retort

:idea: Scissors - Paper - Rock .... :mrgreen:

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: No , no Skippy, you were the one who started animal, vegetable and mineral- when in fact all things are minerals, just re-arranged differently. hehehehehe. Any living form can be transposed into its mineral form, either quickly by incineration or slowly by decomposition. :lol: :lol: 8) 8) 8) Just look at the GOM's and GOW's....or even GOMA-(D).

Yes, yes, I know, that's why I said - you got me on that one
But now I'm taking it back and changing to the Scientific Classification of animals.

It's a womans perogative to change her mind, don't you know :wink:

All too true..... but then they wouldn't be living things, and would no longer be classified as animals which can move, respire, and reproduce.

Who brought living things into the argument. This is an extension not a refinement. I know many dead things that move and respire (well sometimes)- my car engine for one. As to reproducing, you just have to go to the Ford assembly line.

Free to a good home Skip. Email me with yopur address if you want it.

Something like this would be essential in an thematic exhibit.

Time for a new entry.

As far as I am aware you can only get this stamp as a self adhesive in the P stamp (tab) format.

Hope the mods don't mind, but I have a couple of spares I am willing to send to people - just ask you cover postage. Send me an e-mail.
