I have seen turtle crossing signs here in Ontario. No pix, sorry. But we have real ducklings and goslings in the park beside our house! (That's interesting - the spell check here doesn't recognize gosling as a plural.)

The page's author is a luminary in the computer science field. I love his explanation of why doesn't use email:

"Email is a wonderful thing for people whose role in life is to be on top of things. But not for me; my role is to be on the bottom of things."

(Your post prompted me to recall and look up the above.)

Thanks for the links, Julia and Stephen. I esp. like the idea of "fluffy dinosaurs" and the photo of the Linux-users sign.

There's a sign like that in Grandview, Missouri, where Grandview Road and Martha Truman Road Cross :)

It’s nice to know that there’s more than one. Thanks, Rosalie.
