Cote D'Ivoire: 1995

A ball python slithered its way to, and mushrooms sprouted on, stamps issued in 1995.

The ball python, so-called because it curls into a ball when distressed, is also known as royal python, so-called because African royalty wore them as "jewelry". Yep, this snake is nonvenomous. 

The mushroom stamps were issued se-tenant in blocks of four. Not shown above is the 30fr value.
