Images of animals
Different locales often attribute different attributes to animals. In the West, the pig is considered dirty and lazy, but in China, unintelligent and easily cheated. In Taiwan, the owl is considered brutal, but in the United States, wise. Using images of pigs, owls, and other animals in applications to be deployed in multiple locales might confuse users.
