          Americans have been intrigued by Elephants since the first one arrived on our shores in 1796. The cute and fun stamp from the U.S. Postal Service celebrates the affection and ever-evolving connection between humans and elephants.

          A fanciful,digital illustration of an elephant interacting with its young calf depicts the affectionate nature of these beloved animals. Two stylized plants and a bright orange sun add whimsy and color to this cute, lighthearted stamp.

          There is something about elephants that makes people love them.The flapping ears and the mouth seemingly curved into a smile have captured hearts the world over. But it's more than that. They fascinate because they display a social complexity and full emotional range that reflect those of huimans. Elephants, like humans, are one of the longest living land mammals. They practice teamwork, demonstrate the capacity for empathy and grief, and establish lifelong bonds of family. Herds are organized into complex matriarchal societies; calves are raised and mentored by the entire herd.

          These Forever ®stamps will always be equal in value to the current First-Class MailR one-ounce rate.

          Made in the USA.
