Wonderful find, Rally.

Bloody dangerous, those drop-bears!

They can often be heard roaring at each other (and passing tourists ... ) at around sunset or early evening. It's a deep-throated, guttural roar, a bit louder than a cow bellowing, for those who have not heard it before.

I have personally seen one running along the ground. It was trying to catch me!

Better get another jar of Vegemite, just in case I think :raspberry: :lol: :p

That convinced me! I will stay in Europe and not go to Australia. Far to dangerous!
:lol:

geez, talk about wimps. You've got brown and black bears and wolves in Europe don't you? Drop bears aren't that much more dangerous than them. All you need to do is take care and keep an eye out.

And they're a lot smaller too.

That may be true Damo, but to be fair Drop Bears can drop on you even when they are asleep, and when they wake up from that they are not really happy and can be quite aggressive. I think the best things Casperfromholland can do is work on his Aussie accent and take plenty of vegemite with him. Even Aldi sell it now, for those unwilling to support the Woollies/Coles duopoly.

Very true Rally :cool:
But I'll take my chances, that together with a vegemite sandwich :raspberry:
