Inkayacu is now a stamp!

Sending some mail from Peru? What better way to show your love of Peruvian fossils than slapping an Inkayacu paracasensis stamp on the parcel! Inkayacu is an extinct penguin species most well known for its fine fossil feathers. This amazing discovery is now honored with an official stamp from the Peruvian postal service. At 10 Nuevo Sol (about $3 US), this stamp should be good for a pretty large packet.  Between this and the Kairuku coin, fossil penguins have really been basking in official government recognition as of late. per201301l
