Australia of course. Why should it be in the hoax for when it's on the official web page for the museum?

I think it is a bit of a joke for non Australian tourists.

I got a good chuckle out of it. Museum has a sense of humor.

But having said that I have seen them and a freind of mine who was walking in the thick rainforest whilst wearing a backpack was badly attacked a few years ago.

Badly attacked. Horrific injuries. Severed Jugular. It was terrible

What? You haven't seen a drop bear!!

They aren't in the cities anymore but damn, our group encountered one and one particular kid got attacked over and over...

We later found out he didnt eat vegemite.

Charles Darwin- Theory of Natural Selection at its finest.

Drop bears are definitely real just as are hoop snakes and bunyips. Get with it people. Australia is a hard ass country we don't need guns or ammo we have trained marsupials with the ability to whoop dumb ass people upside the head for talking Sh%#. Jokes aside Its a Koala or a Koala Bear as americans call them. They infact are not bears but Marsupials "Koala". I can't believe the OP is from Australia and made this post.

'Drop bears' or 'Guli-ball bears' are a big problem in desert regions.


For the record, I love the scientific name 'Thylarctos plummetus' almost as much as the OP's nick.

Bring back the 'Doug Anthony All Stars'

No its not a koala, it is a drop bear, they are different.

Drop bears are carnivorous.

You better watch out for trained marsupials mate.

Yeah, what ever happened to them?

Perhaps Richard married a girl and broke Paul's heart (I'm referring to DAAS).

I don't know why drop bears have such a bad rap?I used to hand feed them vegemite sandwhiches even when the signs said not too.Those leapin lizards and thirty foot tree taipans worry me far more.But the Government won't acknowledge in the tourist brochures.Then of coarse there are Queensland coppa's that's a whole new breed of razor back.
