AUSTRALIA ~Minke Whale~

Received an awesome whale card with a lovely First day Issue stamp on the front! It is a great new addition for my whale collection... Thanks a lot Xue!!:D

Australia considers the AAT (Australian Antarctic Territory) to be a distinct Australian territory, and release of AAT stamps helps to emphasise this claim since 1957.

The Antarctic minke whale is one of the smallest baleen whales. It has a slender, streamlined body with an elongated head. Minke whales grow to be about 7.8-9m long, weighing about 5,400-6,800kg.
