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.)

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..

Yep! It's true! That's exactly why I made the stamp.

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.

I have a bit of a soft spot for ferrets. They get such a bad rap. But all truly endangered animals need more spotlight!

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
