Fauna 2012 – Snakes of Bosnia and Herzegovina

Croatian post Ltd. Mostar has issued four commemorative postage stamps in sheet of 8 stamps, a postmark and a first day cover featuring snakes.

Bosnia and Herzegovina is rich with snakes. Although unpopular, snakes are very useful animals and by killing them an important link in ecological chain is stopped.

Motif: Grass snake (Natrix natrix), Aesculapian snake (Zamenis longissimus), Horned viper (Vipera ammodytes), Common viper (Vipera berus).
