Begin by googling roadtrafficsigns.com and preparing to get lost for a period of time. When Ruth & I travel, I often see and photograph animal signs like the ones you see above & below. The most unusual one I have seen is the cat above that I photographed near Everglades National Park in Florida.
It’s amazing that when you google road traffic signs and the like so many websites pop up. Many signs are for sale. You can buy an ordinary stop sign, for example, for $125.95.
Probably the country with the most animal road signs is Australia. We once saw a camel sign in The Outback and were very soon amazed to see a camel running alongside the bus we were on. I took the picture of the elk sign on the northern quadrant of Vancouver Island. We saw no elk. However, one time we were driving down Highway 2 south of Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, and an elk lumbered across the road just in front of our rental. Luckily, we were going slow enough to enjoy the scenery and did not run into it, which was a miracle.
The 2 triangular signs were photographed in Iceland We actually saw an Icelandic sheep by the road. I stopped and took his picture. I asked his permission, and, as you can see below, he was very cooperative.
I don’t recall where I took the bison warning sign. We have seen herds of bison several times and are always wary around these animals. The best herd we have ever seen was in Caprock Canyons State Park near Turkey, TX. They are descendants of the Goodnight bison herd. Many people have been attacked by buffaloes, and we had been warned by a ranger in the visitor center at Caprock not to seek direct contact. Check out the Youtube video with the title “Bison Tosses Woman Out of Her Pants” to see an especially vivid example of why Ruth & I stayed in the car to observe them.
