Dinosaurs from Thailand

Lets have some fun today. Enough with the parade of things completing 100 or a 150 years. In fact lets go back a million years & meet the Dinosaurs. :)

Of my humble collection (no modesty here I swear), two stamps from Thailand are on the Dinosaurs. The first sheet is of four stamps released by Thailand in 1997.

I of course not an Dino expert, so in vast knowledge Field, there are only two types of Dinosaurs. The first one is the "T-Rex Dinosaurs" .The second type of Dinosaurs are "Eaten by T-Rex Dinosaurs". Of the four on top, the second one looks like the T-Rex and the rest of the bunch look like the other type. :)

The Thai postal dept releases some really nice postal stamps now and then. But to be honest, I'm not a big fan. The first reason is that all its stamps are printed not in their own country, but in France or Swizerland. Something inherently wrong in that.

Secondly, if you add up the prices of the individual stamps, the cost comes up to 20 Bhat. But the sheet costs 30 Bhat. I'm not sure about the rest of the countries, but Indian sheets cost the same as the cost of the stamps.

funny definition of Dinosaurs: "T-Rex" and "eaten by T-Rex" :)
You might also add a third category "lived before T-Rex" :))

Just, kidding !
