Old Darwin on a back of elephant depicting on stamp of Mauritius, when other three sets shows young Charles Darwin
At his visit on Mauritius young Darwin don't wear beard and mustache and he never visited the island once again. The form of the beard and mustache is very different from well known face of Darwin.
By the way, there are no elephants population on Mauritius, but Darwin has indeed a trip on an elephant by his stay on the island. The elephant was provided him by governor of the islands who got the elephants as present from some Indian Maharaja.

Many thanks to Dr. Peter Voice from Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences, Western Michigan University, for the draft page review and his very valuable comments.
