The Drop bear (Polaris Australis) is the largest living carnivorous marsupial on the mainland of Australia. It's name roughly translates to 'bear of the south' in Latin. It is closely related to the herbivorous Koala and the name 'Drop Bear' is attributed to it's method of attack, as it drops out of a tree on it's unsuspecting victim. It usually feeds on rodents but there have been unsubstantiated reports of Drop bears attacking humans.
