The first time I ever visited this part of Scotland I noticed signs alerting travelers to watch for Red Squirrels. The explaination point on the Red edged sign made me laugh. I could only imagine Squirrels the size of Elephants threatening to crush my car.
The locals explained to me the squirrels are endangered and the signs are to caution drivers to take care and not run over the squirrels darting across the road. Still, I can't help but smile every time I pass a Red Squirrel sign and see visions of squirrels the size of elephants threatening to crush my car.
