Monday Monster Profile: Drop Bears

What are they?

Drop Bears are a type of carnivorous marsupial – kind of like a really big koala that likes to eat people. The live in trees, waiting for their prey to walk below, then suddenly drop down upon their heads in a flurry of teeth and claws.

Where do they live?

At present Drop Bears are only found in the Australian bush. However attempts to export them to New Zealand are currently underway.

What can I do to protect myself from Drop Bears while hiking?

Experts recommend holding a sharp-pointed object above your head as you walk so that if a Drop Bear attacks they are likely to be impaled on your weapon before they land on your head and tear your eyes out. Some locals suggest putting vegemite on your face to scare them off, but that’s just silly. Who doesn’t like vegemite?

I want more information!

Just ask any Australian – I’m sure they’d be more than happy to tell you in great detail about this most dangerous of predator – as a public service of course…
