Ice Age animals

A new set of stamps featuring Ice Age animals has been launched from an English tourist attraction which celebrates its connection with the woolly mammoth.

The Shropshire Star reports that Royal Mail’s latest set of stamps features beasts that roamed Britain some 13,000 years ago. The woolly mammoth is known to have existed in Shropshire county which is located about 200 miles northwest of London.

The Secret Hills Discovery Centre has a special display dedicated to the ancient beast and a replica of its skeleton.

Pictured above is the Discovery Centre manager Jo Bickerton and postman Michael Powell with the giant stamp outside the centre.
