Philatelic news from Brazil

Brazilian fauna
A recent issue of Brazil shows to the world two feline species of native Brazilian fauna: Gato-mourisco (Puma yagouaroundi) and Jaguatirica (Leopardus pardalis).  

Gato-mourisco (Puma yagouaroundi) and Jaguatirica (Leopardus pardalis)

Herbal medicines
Andiroba, Copaíba, Muirapuama and Unha-de-gato
The stamps above show four medicinal plants native to the Amazon and also widely used by the people as herbal medicines : "Andiroba", "Copaíba", Muirapuama and "Unha-de-gato". It is a graphic design very interesting, as it brings the name of plants, written in microletters, then you need a magnifying glass to read them.

Myths and legends
Myths and legends: Manioc 
Myths and legends: Guarana
To talk about this 2 stamps, nothing better than to mention the legends that these represent. I reproduce the text of Wikipedia, because I could not remember all the details of these legends ... Guaraná Legend and Mandioca Legend
The next letter to Mik, these stamps will be on cover.
