The Ministry of Communications is issuing these two kinds of regular postage stamps with new designs: a five-won stamp depicting a squirrel and a 100-won stamp featuring the Kumkwanchong gold crown.

1. Squirrel (a Korean species) An aboreal rodent of the family Sciuridae, this squirrel has yellowish brown fur with five black stripes on the upperpart. The underpart is white. Its body is 12 to 15cm long and its tail measures 11 to 12cm. It has short legs. Having well-developed foreteeth, it feeds on pine nuts, fruits, acorns, chestnuts and insects. It also carries these feeds inside its cheeks to store them in its small cave for winter use. In winter, it lives in a tree hole. Gentle in nature, it is often raised as a household pet. This species of squirrels is widely distributed in the forests in Siberia, China, Korea and Hokkaido.
