Greetings friends!

Zoologists, biologists, naturalists of all stripes, as a rule, when talking about some living organism, use Latin, which does not allow you to know that we are talking about a specific species, subspecies, animal, and not something slightly similar to it, lol.

But, sometimes, Latin looks ridiculous, especially when you cannot imagine the external appearance of the object being talked about.

Something like, I observe by looking at a series of Protected Animals postage stamps issued on the island of Cuba in 1984.

On a postage stamp titled Cuban Solenodon (Solenodon cubanus), we see a strange mouse-like vole, an echidna and a desman at the same time.

Pay attention to the number of toes and claws on the paws of this animal.

It looks more like a terrible Chupacabra that drinks the blood of sheep and rabbits, this is a scary picture that, I hope, you will not dream of at night.

This postage stamp got a face value of 2 Cuban centavos and I don't remember how this series of postage stamps ended up in my collection, lol.

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.
