Mammoth Cave on stamp of Marshall Islands 2017 Petrified wood on stamp of Marshall Islands 2017
 [7] The second issue of "National Park" stamps (1st set issued in 2016), have one Paleontology related stamp.
Petrified Forest National Park is a United States national park in Navajo and Apache counties in northeastern Arizona. Named for its large deposits of petrified wood, the fee area of the park covers about 600 square kilometers, encompassing semi-desert shrub steppe as well as highly eroded and colorful badlands.  The Petrified Forest is known for its fossils, especially fallen trees (some of  it is seen on the stamp) that lived in the Late Triassic Period, about 225 million years ago. The sediments containing the fossil logs are part of the widespread and colorful Chinle Formation, from which the Painted Desert gets its name. Beginning about 60 million years ago, the Colorado Plateau, of which the park is part, was pushed upward by tectonic forces and exposed to increased erosion. All of the park's rock layers above the Chinle, except geologically recent ones found in parts of the park, have been removed by wind and water. In addition to petrified logs, fossils found in the park have included Late Triassic ferns, cycads, ginkgoes, and many other plants as well as fauna including giant reptiles called phytosaurs, large amphibians, and early dinosaurs. Paleontologists have been unearthing and studying the park's fossils since the early 20th century.  More info on Wikipedia

Another stamp shows a landscape of Mammoth cave.
Mammoth Cave National Park is a U.S. national park in central Kentucky, encompassing portions of Mammoth Cave, the longest cave system known in the world. Since the 1972 unification of Mammoth Cave with the even-longer system under Flint Ridge to the north, the official name of the system has been the Mammoth-Flint Ridge Cave System. The park was established as a national park on July 1, 1941. It became a World Heritage Site on October 27, 1981
No fossils of the woolly mammoth have ever been found in Mammoth Cave, and the name of the cave has nothing to do with this extinct mammal. Rather, the name "Mammoth" refers to the large width and length of the passages connecting to the Rotunda just inside the entrance.[27] This name was given long before the cave system's true extent was fully known.

 [8] On September 22, post of Nepal issued 3rd set of "prehistoric mammals". First two sets issued in 2013 and 2015. Fossi of all animals depicted on the stamps found in Nepal and are on display in Natural History  Museum.

 [10] Dinosaur on Teruel stamp of Spain 2017The stamp is dedicated to province Teruel, shows varios sighseeing and local food of the area. Dinosaur's head can be seen on the bottom-right corner of the stamp. The head belongs to Aragosaurus dinosaurs. Aragosaurus (meaning "Aragon lizard") was a genus of sauropod dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous period of Galve, province of Teruel, in the autonomous territory of Aragón, Spain. Aragosaurus was a large, quadrupedal plant-eating dinosaur, which lived about 133-125 million years ago. It was about 18 metres  in length and about 28 tonnes in weight.  Like other sauropods, it had a long neck, a long powerful tail, a small head and a bulky body.  Another dinosaur found in Teruel province is Turiasaurus riodevensis, who was also a sauropod dinosaur,  is believed to be the largest dinosaur ever found in Europe, and is among the largest dinosaurs known to date, at 36–39 metres in length and with a weight of 40 to 48 tonnes.

Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta and Mistaken Point on UNESCO World Heritage Sites stamps of Canada 2017The first two stamps on the mini sheet and the booklet shows famous fossil found locations:
Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta and Mistaken Point.
The first stamp shows Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta, known for its remarkable fossil specimens that represent every known group of Cretaceous dinosaurs, as well as its impressive area of virtually undisturbed badlands and riparian (riverside) habitat.
The stamp has similar design to Dinosaur Provincial Park stamp issued in 2015, but it is smaller in size. On the stamp from 2015 the name of the park is written in white font on the foreground just over country name on the buttom left corner. On the stamp from 2017
the name of the park is written in tiny balck font in the middle of the stamp.
Fossil at Mistaken Point on UNESCO World Heritage Sites stamps of Canada 2017
The second stamp shows Mistaken Point, the rugged coastal cliffs host the oldest known collection of large fossils in the world, marking the world’s first appearance of large, biologically complex organisms. Some fossil is also visible in big zoom.
This fossil site is located at the south-eastern tip of the island of Newfoundland, in eastern Canada. It consists of a narrow, 17 km-long strip of rugged coastal cliffs. Of deep marine origin, these cliffs date to the Ediacaran Period (580-560 million years ago), representing the oldest known assemblages of large fossils anywhere.

 [A2] Royal Mail starts its 2017 Stamp Program with a subject that has not previously been featured as a stand-alone topic: how people lived in prehistoric times has always been a fascination for many and the Ancient Britain stamp issue explores this subject in some detail.  The stamps show famous iconic sites and some of the most exceptional artefacts found across the UK, and overlays illustrations to show how people lived, worked and used the objects. We also explore the social and technological evolution of these early Britons.  The first metals were used in Britain while still in the ‘Stone Age’. The arrival of cultures that could ‘make metal’ would have a dramatic effect on society. In the British Isles the first seams of copper were exploited in Ireland around 2500BC. The discovery of tin in South West England helped to make Britain an important centre – copper smelted with an amount of tin makes the superior metal bronze: harder, more durable and versatile and the so-called Bronze Age saw several other technological advancements.  Overall, the stamps give a timeline across thousands of years of history, from a glimpse of Stone Age ritual of 11,000 years ago, through the Bronze Age and into the Iron Age of some 300 BC.

Nahal Mearor Caves on UNESCO World Heritage Sites stamps of Israel 2017 [A3] Three stamps showing UNESCO world heritage sites of Israel. One of them depicting a beautiful prehistoric stone tool from Nahal Mearot Caves in Israel.  Four caves (Tabun, Gamal Nahal and Es-Skhul Cave) are carved into the mountain on the southern slope of Mount Carmel, at the entrance to the Nahal Me'arot Caves. Archeological excavations conducted at the site from 1928 to the present have discovered evidence of human existence near and inside the caves over hundreds of thousands of years. Among the many findings were remnants of houses, various stone tools, jewelry, bones of animals used for food and graves.
Neanderthals may have lived side by side with early humans and possibly interbred with them, according to new research. Stone  axes and sharp flint arrowheads of both branches of the human race have been discovered in limestone caves in northern Israel. The  findings have led archeologists to believe the two sub-species found harmony in a coastal mountain range that today is in a state of war with its neighbours. one of the bones uncovered at
Nahal Me'arot - a World Heritage site - had lethal wounds which suggested prehistoric men lived in peace with each other 80,000 years ago. More info on Dailymail

 [A4]   Fossil found place, Cliefden cave on stamp of Australia 2017This stamp issue presents four highly significant caves from around Australia. Each stamp provides us with a glimpse into these spectacular underground environments. One of the stamps shows Cliefden cave.
The Cliefden Caves Geoheritage Site is multifaceted, containing internationally significant Ordovician fossil localities, limestone caves of national significance, a warm spring and tufa dams of state significance and the historically significant site where limestone was first discovered in inland Australia. It has been ranked among the 70 most significant fossil sites in Australia by the Australian Heritage Council and as the thirteenth most significant limestone cave site in Australia by Davey. The site was nominated to the Register of the National Estate by the Geological Society of Australia in the late 1970s and registered in 1987. (Wikipedia)


 [A5] In August 2017 South Africa issued "National Partks III" stamps set.  The five stamps depict the Golden Gate Highlands National Park, Tsitsikamma at the Garden Route National Park, Camdeboo National Park, Table Mountain National Park and Bontebok National Park.  The stamps are postage for registered letters, costing R27.50 each.  
Three of these parks are also known as important fossil found places.
The Camdeboo National Park is located in the Karoo and almost completely surrounds the Eastern Cape town of Graaff-Reinet.  Camdeboo National Park was proclaimed as South Africa's 22nd National Park under the management of South African National Parks on Sunday 30 October 2005. It covers an area of 194 square kilometers.
The Karoo  is a semi-desert natural region of South Africa. There is no exact definition of what constitutes the Karoo, and therefore its extent is also not precisely defined. The Karoo is partly defined by its topography, geology, and climate — above all, its low rainfall, arid air, cloudless skies, and extremes of heat and cold.The Karoo also hosted a well-preserved ecosystem hundreds of million years ago which is now represented by many fossils. he uniqueness of the Karoo Basin, as it is known to geologists, lies partly in the fact that its 50-million-year fossil record, covering a period from 240 to 190 million years ago, is largely unbroken, so that the intricate evolutionary pathways followed by different animal groups through time can be more closely traced than in other fossil-bearing systems of rock strata. In the true paleontological sense, therefore, the 'Karoo' is more than just a geographical area: the element of time is inextricably woven into the meaning of the word.  Some prehistoric animals which fossils found in Karoo depicted on South African stamps from 1982. More info about Camdeboo National Park and Karoo are here:  [1]  [2]  [3]  [4]  [5]
Prehistoric animals of Karoo formation on stamps of South Africa 1982

The outstanding features of Golden Gate are the rocks, whose formation started as far back as 200 million years ago. The glowing golden colour of the sandstone cliffs facing each other on either side of the road at sunset led to the name Golden Gate.
Numerous paleontology finds have been made in the park including dinosaur eggs and skeletons. The oldest dinosaur embryos ever discovered were found in the park in 1978. The eggs were from the Triassic Period (220 to 195 million years ago) and had fossilised foetal skeletons of Massospondylus, a prosauropod dinosaur.

Table Mountain National Park is part of the Cape Floral World Heritage Site.  It is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and one of the most beautiful spots on the African continent. It covers an area of about 60km from across the Cape Peninsula right up to Cape Point, with Table Mountain and the Cape of Good Hope as its crown jewels.
Table Mountain National Park is home to an astonishing array of rare plant life, fynbos and different variants of protea. The park is also home to penguins, birds one would normally expect to find near Antarctica. Southern right and humpback whales visit the coast between August and October.
These rocks are believed to have originated in shallow tidal flats, in which a few Ordovician fossils, and fossil tracks have been preserved.
