Travel the World of Postage Stamps - Protected Animals - Cuban Land Snail (Polymita picta) - Cuba 1984 - Michel Cuba 2886 - my hobby.
I decided that our fun on the island of Cuba will continue, we are tourists there, and tourists in Cuba have a special attitude.
Tourists can do what the citizens of this country cannot do, for example, enjoy the taste of lobster.
We will travel to 1984 and see a very strange series of postage stamps called Protected Animals.
Yes, this is a very strange series and each postage stamp separately.
It seems that the one who approved this series of postage stamps for the release did not want people to be able to recognize those animals that are under the protection of the state and violated the law, lol.
I have no other explanation for this.
You will understand everything when you see the postage stamps on which the drawings, which, most likely, were drawn by children in kindergarten, when they were asked to draw their favorite animals, are sealed.
The first postage stamp, denominated in 1 Cuban centavo, features -Cuban Land Snail (Polymita picta).
I really doubt it. that you will be able to distinguish this snail from some other snail that lives in Cuba.
I would call this series not "Protected Animals", but simply - "Drawings of preschool children on the theme - Nature".

I edited a photo in the program PhotoDirector, which I also installed on my smartphone.
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.
