Stamp Collecting Month (SCM) is especially for kids (or the inner child in all of us). It's about encouraging budding philatelists, and sharing some educational facts on an interesting topic. Our 2014 SCM stamp release features six creatures (insects, reptiles or fish) that can pack a painful punch if disturbed or threatened.
