Must be real if they are a documented species...
Drop Bear - Australian Museum
Is it a joke?!
This has made my day ♥ Drop bears are very aggressive glad someone posted it
Ohmigosh! That made my day :lol:
lol, very funny. had a good laugh.
No, its the Australian Museum, they do NOT joke about things such as this!
Why would it be a joke?
Drop bears were very much real 20-10 million years ago (and still true apparently in SA.) google marsupial lion (images). There is even a painting of one from the Kimberly so they didn't disappear that long ago. Amazing fused molars turned into giant scissors that would have no trouble shearing bone.
I see they've done some indirect tracking too -
"Analysis of the collected data provides valuable insights into the hunting behaviour of drop bears and has implications for a better understanding of the geographical distribution of other rare species, including hoop snakes and bunyips."
Hoop snakes and Kangawallafoxes are being added as we speak. Glad people are finally taking this seriously.
Here's the article. Make sure your overseas visitors are made aware

Are they going to add the Death Watch Beetle savage little things eat electrical wire
We ran into a group of Kangawallafoxes didnt seem to mind us being there.
Haha, love the distribution map.
They were all eaten by black panthers left by American troops in Townsville.....................................
A Mod would never joke about a dangerous animal like Drop Bears and the like, it would be highly irresponsible.
why is there no mention of the powers of a Left Handed Screwdriver against these most cuddly, viscious beasts ???
Lol love the latin name: Thylarctos plummetus
Ha ha, too awesome. I too love the distribution map lol
Made my day too
The scientific paper is a hoot. Check out some of those references.
