Slow Down for Special Beings

A recent visit to Cranbourne Botanical Gardens revealed this sign by the roadside leading to the carpark.
Particular snakes include the copperhead and tiger snakes.
The entrance road has lots of tight scrub either side.

A little further along was this sign.
The bandicoot is mainly a nocturnal animal.
The rabbit-eared bandicoot is known as a bilby.

Australian worlds
Wonder of special beings
Respect their wild space

And last of all was this one.

I love it that the signs are for the itty bitty critters as well as the large and famous ones too.

Although I think I'd stay out of the way of the snakes!

I love unusual traffic signs and these are fabulous!

It's nice that they post the caution signs. So many drivers here are always in a hurry that the wildlife don't stand a chance.

I *have* slowed down for rattlesnakes when we lived in Arizona. Even though I have valid reason not to like them, they are living creatures. I just prefer to stay out of their way, period.

How truly Australia -- love those signs. I didn't know about bandicoots. A lot of people would want to hurry up if they saw a snake -- just to get away!

I'm sorry. But if I see a snake in the road? I'm gonna ride right over that sucker. AND - I might even have a smile on my face! ;)

As far as the other animals? Yeah - I'd brake for them!

We have signs around here for turtle crossings, but I have never actually seen a turtle crossing. Disappointing!
