Great Britain’s Royal Mail issued four new pictorial Post & Go: Hibernating Animals stamps, overprinted with First Class, First Large, Second Class and Second Large values, today, November 14.
Royal Mail provided the following description of the four stamps:
Hedgehogs like to hibernate in piles of dead leaves and vegetation, though this can make them vulnerable to garden bonfires.
Grass snakes are cold-blooded and rely on sunlight for warmth. When the days grow too short, they crawl into vegetation or cracks in banks to hibernate.
Dormouse are proverbially sleepy, dormice can spend more than half the year in hibernation, within carefully woven woodland nests.
The Brown long-eared bat needs a steady supply of insects, so when this food source disappears, they hibernate.
