Is not a Possom just a big whitish Rat?


That's why we chose it.

"We had to do a Possum Crossing sigh once. We couldn't find a good silhouette of a Possum so we used a Rat. No one noticed!" :smileyvery-happy:


The actual animal silhouette depicted on the sign should be irrelevant, I think. I can see someone driving along, noticing a 'Possum Crossing' sign, and then swerving violently off the road to avoid a raccoon. He sues the town and in court claims that he was alert for possums but they didn't mention anything about raccoons! All of those signs should be 'universalized' to "Critter Crossing".

Works for me. Actually according to the MUTCD* the only available animal crossing related signs  are; Deer, Cow, Horse with Rider, Bear, Sheep, Bighorn Sheep, Donkey, Elk, Moose and Wild Horse. As text you can have Large Animal Crossing.
 

All the Duck, Raccoon, Possum, etc. are demanded by the local fuzzy critter patrols.

Why do Traffic Control Devices need a Uniform?

That's "Uniform", not "Uniformed".  You're welcome.  :smileyvery-happy:

That looks more like a polar bear balancing a squash on his nose.

That looks like an elephant with it's trunk up in the air (I guess that would be a short trunk though).
