On September 4, 2008, the German Post AG has released in their stamp series "For the Youth 2008" is now 4 stamps with dinosaur motifs. The four illustrated dinosaur Plateosaurus, Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops and Diplodocus sin all together in Frankfurt's Senckenberg Museum to see.
There, the new series was also presented on Friday, 5.09.2008. Particularly enthusiastic collector and / or dinosaur fans can even have a special cancellation on Saturday at the museum catch.
Look at one of four dinosaur stamps along with the adjacent stamp motif.
Whether the stamp series will be a success among the youth and therefore more attention is paid to the paleontology, is questionable. Letters are sent out well below this target group is almost exclusively electronic. 
The Diplodocus - the long-necked double bars - could be up to 28 meter long and weigh eight to ten tons. He belongs to the group of Echsenfu dinosaurs - the largest land animals that ever lived. These animals had their best timein the Jurassic period about 155 to 145 million years ago.
