This stamp design illustrates a carnosaur about to attack a sauropod
| 80c - Pterosaur
The pterosaurs were the first animals (other than insects) to take to the air and fly. Their wings were large membranes of skin which measured four metres across. The pterosaurs diet consisted of fish and other marine life.
|$1.0 - Ankylosaur
Up to three metres long and weighing around half a tonne, the herbivorous ankylosaur was well protected from predators with a heavy bone armour which plated its back and head.
Mauisaurus was a plesiosaur - a marine reptile that swum with its head above the water and fed on fish and other prey. Measuring nine metres long, mauisaurus was the largest plesiosaur to be found in New Zealand waters.
| $2.80 - Carnosaur
The large meat-eating carnosaur was among the most terrifying of all dinosaurs. It walked on its hind legs, had powerful clawed hands and may have been capable of speeds of up to 40 or 50 kilometres per hour!
