A Fictional animal created by the country of Australia to scare tourists, this national joke has extended to the point of folklore amongst aussies and is similar to the Left Handed Spanner to mechanics/tradies.

According to the story: The drop bear is similar in appearance to the Koala however it is extremely fast (much unlike the Koala) and mysterious, razor sharp claws and the unusual tendancy to drop from high trees to attack people walking under the tree. The bear then goes about decapitating/maiming the victem then disappears into the night.

This story has been used many a time to convince neive tourists, who are already convinced everything in australia wants to kill them that even the crowded city isn't safe because every tree may potentially harbor a bear.

2. The only animal Steve Irwin could not catch on request.
Aussie: "I wouldn't camp there if i were you mate - drop bears you see."
Tourist: "Oh no, what are they??"
Aussie: "Nasty things drop bears, worse than the snakes, spiders, sharks and sea-life put together..."
Tourist: "I don't believe you"
Aussie: "You see this scar *points at nasty scar* - that was a drop bear"
Tourist is terrified - Aussie is laughing on the inside
