A Mosquito as the State Bird of Alaska

Alaska State Bird
The Mosquito
(Skeeter horribilis)

The Great Alaskan Mosquito (State Bird).
One of the most feared species known to man.  In the summer they rule the skies in search of their prey.  No matter how hard you try to protect yourself, there is no escape from their treacherous assault.  It is believed several large children and two or three small horses have actually been carried off never to be seen again.


  1. I still have one of these..I was stationed in Anchorage in the 80's

    1. I actively look for postcards like this, if you click the 'mosquitos' tag underneath the card you'll see a few more. If you still have one, then you know how much fun they are. :D
