Ticket to Ride Map Collection: Volume 3 – The Heart of Africa » Rules » Significance of graphics on Destination Ticket values?

Author: jbliii
I just got my copy of TtR: Heart of Africa last night and had a question: Why are there different graphics with the value number in each top-right corner of the Destination Cards? The animal-hide logos clearly correspond to the values themselves ( < 11 = giraffe, 11-19 = elephant, 20+ = cheetah), but there's no mention of this in the rules. Nor is there any requirement to include a high-value card in each player's initial set of options (as in TtR: Europe).

Is there any significance to this besides aesthetics?
