Yep, got in a souvenir shop in Darling Harbour, it's only a small sticker thing, they had various plastic ones about 5 ins across for 'roos, Camel's, Koalas but had sold out of the drop bears ones unfortunately.

The website of the Australian Museum contains an entry for the drop bear written in a serious tone similar to entries for other, real, species. The entry classifies the Drop Bear as Thylarctos plummetus. :kolobok_biggrin:

That first one is a dead ringer for Geoff Robinson on a muddy, wet (was there anything but) winters afternoon at Thrum Hall in the mid 80s.

If you put vegemite behind your ears it reduces the likelihood of attack from the furry little tree demons.

When we first started accurately recording deaths as a result of drop bear attacks in the 70s, there were 100s killed each year. 

In 1980 nearly an entire family was wiped out by one particularly nasty bear. The only survivor was 8 year old Bruce Johns who was messily eating a vegemite sandwich just before the attack and had some of it smeared around his head.

From that point on we knew vegemite would protect us.

Vegemite theory proven by researchers at the University of Tasmania.

https://www.australiangeographic.com.au/news/2013/04/drop-bears-target-tourists-study-says/
“The analysis has provided valuable insights into the animal’s hunting behaviour,” Volker said. “It has been confirmed that foreigners are much more likely to be dropped on than Australians.”

Volker attributes this selective behaviour to a number of factors, the most significant of which relates to Australian people’s taste for Vegemite.

“By-products of the interaction between chemicals found in Vegemite and those found in human sweat repel drop bears,” Volker says. “Most Australians eat Vegemite at least once a day, so they permanently exude these chemicals through their skin and are thus protected.”

For Drop Bears, just rub yourself in toothpaste, it's the best known deterrent .

I have actually just lost a mouthful of tea when I read this.

And now Florida is suffering from a attack of Drop Iguanas! As if having Trump spend most of his time there isn't bad enough.
