1. They attack from above
Hikers and bush walkers have been known to be ‘dropped on’ by Drop Bears (thus their name sake). Most attacks are not fatal and result usually in injuries including bites and scratches (at least in humans).
3. The Australian government even released this warning: “Look up, stay alive”
6. Because unlike their distant relatives, Dropbear are carnivorous and incredibly aggressive
7. Dropbears exist everywhere in Australia (except Tasmania)
(Because not even Dropbears want to live there).
8. Dropbear attacks are on the rise
We would never recommend avoiding Australia (which seems to have conveniently been left off this chart), caution is recommended if you are visiting Australia, Germany, Thailand, Canada or New Zealand.
9. Dropbears hate Vegemite
Tourists are recommended to smear Vegemite liberally on their armpits to repel Dropbears. Also, always wear a wide-brimmed hat outdoors.
