Similar to the Blobfish, the Dumbo octopus - named after the famous little long-eared Elephant - is living in deep sea.
With his/her large eyes it's a cute looking animal.
Similar to the previous drawing of the Blobfish I love this drawing, which also has been created by John Edwards.
The mail machine has added some interesting small hole (bottom middle) in this card, but fortunately John's autograph is still there.
Thank you very much, John!

Nicole Eippers always makes beautiful collages. This time it's a desert lizard, the Thorny dragon (Moloch horridus), who ran into my mailbox. With of course Nicole's famous Pig, and the beautiful Belgian Butterfly stamp.
Nicole is an official Pig collector, so check her incoming mail art and have yourself inspired: I think she'll always appreciate new Piggy mail art!
Thank you very much, merci beaucoup, Nicole!
The Blobfish is an intriguing animal, and I was very happy to receive this great drawing and background information from John:
"The blobfish lives off the coasts of Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand. It is a deep sea fish. Its flesh is a gelatinous mass with a density less than water.
It is now an endangered species."
By the way, I found a short movie about the Blobfish, in which you can see how the Blobfish is supposed to look like when he/she is in his/her own environment, in deep water. See this link.
The stamps show another endangered Fish, the Wolffish (and three ladies who turned their backs upon them, leaving the Wolffish behind in bewilderment).
And the air mail sticker in a good place :-)
Thank you very much, John!

If you look close, you can see two small parts of them: chips!
Together with the Fish it would be a well-known English dish, but of course I prefer to see them swimming, these Fish!
Created and sent from a place close to the Seine, by Dean.
With also some interesting information about sharks:
Thank you very much, Dean!
Smiling young Wombat, one of the marsupials of Australia. Well, I'm not sure if this joey is smiling, because at this age, she should be inside the Wombat mom's pouch.
Anyways, I'm glad this interesting animal is joining us! Created and sent by Angela Behrendt from Germany.
Herzlichen Dank, Angela!
Beautiful Bird and beautiful message. Created and sent by Kim JungYoun from Korea.
She also added beautiful stationery, and this suitable postage stamp from Japan - I love vegetables on stamps, and I'm sure the Dove has enjoyed the corn during the trip, too.
More animals on the envelope, and/at amazing beautiful postage stamps!
Thank you very much, Kim!

'Beetle ventures outdoors' - indeed a weird, and nice, animal. Put on paper and sent by Stripygoose from the United Kingdom. And see that also nice little Bird on the address side!
Thank you very much, Stripygoose!
