Argentina - Magellanic Penguins

Penguins are amazing creatures aren't they? I have once seen them in nature - but I can talk about that when posting a related card :) I definately haven't seen these cuties, who inhabit the southern coastal regions of Argentina and Chile, and the Falkland Islands. They grow to be 60-75cm tall and mainly feed on molluscs and crustaceans. Sadly their status is near-threatened because of the regular big oil spills :(

I was stoked when contacted on the offficial site for an 'argentinian swap ' - i love the country and it would make me really happy to be able to travel there! Whats more, this card is simply amazing, and the stamp and  cancellation too. Thanks so much Silvina! :)))
