St. Vincent &The Grenadine at Expo 2005 Aichi Japan


St. Vincent & The Grenadine Post issued the souvenir sheet which composed of three stamps feature Mammoth for commemorating the participation at Expo 2005 Aichi Japan.

A mammoth is any species of the extinct genus Mammuthus. These proboscideans are members of Elephantidae, the family of elephants and mammoths, and close relatives of modern elephants. They were often equipped with long curved tusks and, in northern species, a covering of long hair. They lived from the Pliocene epoch from around 4.8 million to 4,500 years ago.
