Bestiary #018: It’ll Cuddle WITH YO’ FACE

2015-10-27-Drop Bear Color

Name(s): Drop Bear

Country of Origin: Australia


It’s a koala that will fall from a tree and murder you. For some reason, there’s a proper entry of it on the Australian Museums website – which has a further entry to a journal article? Australia, what have you forgotten to tell the rest of the world!?

I’m pretty sure my first encounter with this creature was in the pages of the ever-fabulous Nextwave. I don’t think there’ll ever be a better use of them.
