i am happy to say a new atlantic sea animals print finally went off to the printers yesterday. i know some of you have been waiting for this one, and we've found lots of amazing sea creatures to share, not least of all the fascinating giant oarfish.

with a near global range, the oarfish is the largest bony fish in the world (over fifty feet in length!) and is presumably the original sea serpent. lots more information in this video (note to parents waching with their four year old; language gets a little questionable at the six minute mark. not naming any names though. who would let their kids watch an unvetted youtube video???)

palau oarfish stamp from here.

and the new sea animals of the atlantic should be in the shop by early next week.
