Another in the series of postage stamps for a hypothetical independent nation of Alaska. Features a digital painting of a Kodiak Bear on a neutral parchment, or old paper, background. Text reading "Alaska," "Postage 8 Nuggets," and Kodiak Bear Ursus arctos middendorffi" also appear. The Kodiak Bear (Ursus arctos middendorffi), a subspecies of the brown, or grizzly, bear are the world's largest bears. A full grown male can be over ten feet tall when upright on his hind legs and weigh over 1500 pounds - truly a sight to behold.
