These 5 fauna & flora stamps shows:
1.Fighting Spider: It is so called because two males will readily fight each other, either in a natural setting, or if put together, These spiders are commonly kept in matchboxes with a piece of green leaf and a spat of saliva for moisture. A spider that wins fight after fight gets the status of "first king". A common belief is that the darkest males are most aggressive.
