Real Endangered Animal by Eliea Real Endangered Animal by Eliea
Let me know if this is hard to read or too fast. This is my first animated stamp.

If someone wants to make it a PLZ account that would be awesome! Just send me the link so I can add it here for the non subscribers. (myself included)

Flipped picture, slowed down text, tweaked colors of text and fonts.

Fixed the hangover of the word endangered on the edge of the stamp. And the weird 2 pixels that decided to become visible instead of transparent.


from :[link]
"The endangered black-footed ferret is a member of the weasel family. It is the only ferret native to North America - the domestic ferret is a different species of European origin and has been domesticated for hundreds of years - and has a tan body with black legs and feet, a black tip on the tail and a black mask. It has short legs with large front paws and claws developed for digging. Its large skull and strong jaw and teeth are adapted for eating meat."

"Black-footed ferrets once numbered in the tens of thousands, but widespread destruction of their habitat and exotic diseases in the 1900s brought them to the brink of extinction. Only 18 remained in 1986. Today, they are making a comeback, with approximately 750 black-footed ferrets in the wild, and another 250 living in captive breeding facilities (2008)."

"Endangered Species Act (ESA): Almost all populations of black-footed ferrets except those listed as non-essential experimental populations are listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act."

Support truly endangered animals.
I'd like to give more endangered animals that are overlooked stamps. feel free to suggest some! (though there are certain ones that I will not make stamps for.)

That's actually a Black-Footed Polecat which are close relatives to ferrets.

Amur Leopard (I think only about 40 left in the wild)? The Hector's Dolphin (Or Maui's Dolphin) only 100 I think?

There's a zoo who actually breeds them and releases them into the wild for the survival of the breed!

Great stamp! :) 
I love these guys...they're so cute and lively. They play a important role in the ecosystem, too. Pity they're rare now :(
Why don't people pay more attention to these guys, and to actually endangered species like the Golden Frog, Bald Ibis, or the Tiger? The focus of many almost cult-like (sometimes) groups are Grey Wolves, which aren't even endangered..

I saw a short documentary on these animals, and it's really sad they were hunted so close to extenction. Adorable, peculiar little guys they are.

Great stamp! It's a shame they are endangered, just as any other endangered species. A zoo I went to was working on breeding black footed ferrets. they had pictures of some of the newer babies which was nice to see

from being endangered many animals such as chinchillas need to be saved from the endangered list
we saved the bald eagle so why not these guys

Is it too late to suggest endangered species? What about some invertebrates? Everyone knows about the endangered vertebrates a lot more than the inverts! And inverts are a lot more important for the ecosystem. They are severely under-publicised on account of not being cuddly looking, but you just have to get to know them.

My species which I research is the katipo, New Zealand's version of the black widow. It lives in sand dunes and has one last stronghold - which is being colonised by invasive grass species which the katipo don't like and people disturb the spiders by driving over them in dirt bikes etc. Peope may go "ew spiders" but the more I get to know these lovely ladies the more I love them. They are very shy and they just want to go about their business - they don't care about the outside world. If you poke them they don't fly out and attack you, they close up and try and make themselves as small as possibe. I think they are actually rather sweet. And sooo pretty! :) Anyways you're doing a great job trying to get peope to notice the less well known endangered species. Long live the bllack footed ferret!

I"ve never heard of a ring tailed ferret. But if it's not in the USA that could be why. Let me do some googling....
Nope nothing about a ring tailed ferret. There are a few ring tailed animals you could be thinking of:

Epic stamp!!! Though I admit I dislike ferrets, I like them far better than canines and felines. I think the dislike probably is just a deep rooted dislike of mammalian carnivores. Black Footed Ferret for the win!

How about Audubon's Crested Caracara, Kakapo, or Hawaiian Crow (The crow being so close to extinction there are none in the wild) for the next?

I'd love to make this a series of lesser known endangered animal stamps. So those are all excellent suggestions. Birds need love too!
And there's nothing wrong with disliking ferrets. My feels are though that you haven't met the right one if you feel that way. I felt that way about cats and while I still prefer dogs, since meeting our adopted kitties my mind has been changed. lol

:) YAY!!!!

Ferrets have the best temperments for juvenile mammal pets I've handled (although they have this need to nome my hand....or my face when I hugged it like an idiot) dogs and cats always bite me unless they are a year old (only two puppies ever made the exception). :) My advantage with ferrets is the stink factor doesn't effect me due to my poor smell abilities.

Eliea Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I don't notice the smell anymore since I've had ferrets for 6 years now.
Also their food and litter make a huge difference. Less fishy oils the less they smell. Also using a litter that is pine or paper based works wonders.
But yes they have awesome temperaments. They do teeth like any baby animal. And they do tend to nip becasue ferrets have very thick skin and have to be taught that humans don't. lol But they are one of my favorite animals. They always seem to be in a good mood.
If you like ferrets so much there's a group for them now that I just joined:

Yay ferrets! They control the prarie dog population... and those bastarding little rodents leave holes that can play havok on horses and bison. Poor critturs step in a hole and break their legs. :(

Your description of the prarie dogs made me laugh. My grandmother lives in Montana, so whenever we go up, she lets us blast some prarie dogs.
