The Earth was once inhabited by strange prehistoric creatures that suddenly died out around 65 million years ago. They were the dinosaurs or "terrible lizards", a compound Greek word first used by scientist Richard Owen in 1842. This stamp series will continue next year and is issued using novel printing techniques such as phosphorescent stamps, scale textures, 3D and Augmented Reality (AR).
Ankylosaurus or "fused lizard" had armour-like skin and a tail ending in a kind of club. It could measure up to 9 metres long and weigh 6 tonnes. It was a quadruped, with the hind legs longer than the forelegs, a low, very wide body, and a wide triangular head. It was a herbivore with small teeth and no molars.
Tyrannosaurus was one of the largest predators and the most famous dinosaur. It could reach over 12 metres long and weigh 8 tonnes. It had an enormous skull and a long, heavy tail with over 40 vertebrae which helped to balance its body. A bipedal carnivore, its upper limbs were small while its legs were very long in proportion to its body. It was an excellent hunter with a short, muscular, S-shaped neck.
Triceratops, or "three-horned face", is distinguished by the frill on the back of its skull and its three horns, one on the snout and two over the eyes, which could be over one metre long. It had a large, robust body and four sturdy legs. Its head was a third of its length. It was a herbivore.
Diplodocus was one of the longest dinosaurs at up to 36 metres. It had four sturdy legs, slightly shorter in the front than the rear, a long neck and an extremely long, whip-like tail.
Dinosaurs dominated the Earth during the Mesozoic or Secondary era. Although now extinct, the fossils found on every continent and the work of scientists have enabled us to discover how these animals lived.
