 [1] On 30th Seeptember 2002, Stamperia issued more than 200 stamps of famous personalities, some of them shows dinosaurs and Charles Darwin.

  [2] Laetoli footprints are shown on the stamp. Laetoli is a site in Tanzania, dated to the Plio-Pleistocene and famous for its hominin footprints, preserved in volcanic ash. The site of the Laetoli footprints  is located 45 km south of Olduvai gorge. The location and tracks were discovered by archaeologist Mary Leakey in 1976, perhaps she is shown on the stamp, and were excavated by 1978

 [A1] Coelacanth,  Latimeria chalumnae, shown on stamp from 1998 and on one stamp from "Fish" mini-sheet from 2007.
On 20 February 1939, the stunning announcement was made that a Coelacanth (Latimeria) had been caught off the Chalumna River mouth near East London (a city in RSA). At that time, the Coelacanth was thought to be extinct for nearly 70 million years. The drama commenced on 22 December 1938, when Capt H Goosen, skipper of the trawler Nenrine, brought ashore a peculiar metallic-blue, heavily-scaledfish with fins resembling legs. Miss Marjorie Courtenay-Latimer, Curator o the East London Museum, was informed of the strangie catch, but was unable to identify the fish, which measured 1,5 m in length and weighed 57 kg. "Searching for African Coelacanths" exhibit of Susan Bahnick Jones explain the story of the "leaving fossil" discovery.
