Everything about Australia can kill you. The extreme landscapes, the vast ocean currents, the herpes-filled streetwalkers but nothing more so than its insane, animal life. There are deadly snakes, psycho camels and even a tiny, little octopus that can knock you out in seconds flat. But, for me, there is nothing scarier than the elusive drop bear.
It's, apparently, a cousin of the koala but mixed with Tasmanian Devil and literally jumps out of trees and attacks feverishly before you ever even know what has happened to you. I found the article posted below (here) and wanted to share it with everyone who may never have heard of this insanely dangerous animal but I can bet, you won't soon forget!

(As you can see on the map of their locations - Sydney is in the heart of drop bear territory and I literally peer into the trees as I walk under every single day.)
