Whoever starts collecting nowadays, might think that 'oddness' is the general rule.
Each country must have it's odd stamp or sheet at least once a year.
Well recently I was sent a beautiful sheet from Indonesia, and this from my Filippina friend.
Of course I can't resist in posting it here in my blog for you.

The first one shows the "Leptophryne cruentata" better known as the 'bleeding toad' or the 'fire toad'. It's an critically endangered toad that can be found on the Malay peninsula and suthern Thailand.
Due to the eruption of the Mount Galunggung in West-Java (Indonesia) in 1982, this toad is critically endangered.

Although this sheet is rare, please bare in mind that that the animal depicted is in higher need of conservation then any of the above stamps.
Hopefully issues like this will draw the attention on the need of wildlife conservation.
