  • drop bear

    A dangerous Australian marsupial found typically around the coast line, although often ventures inland. The Drop Bear spends most of its life hidden in tree canopies and is the only native predator of humans on the continent. Drop Bears have been known to strike during the day, however they are most active at night and will wait for campers or other prey to fall asleep before attacking. It is important to always employ the buddy system when camping in Australia. Carry a radio, personal locator beacon or satellite phone, plenty of food and water, and always carry Drop Bear repellent.
