Monsters of Oceania: The Drop Bear!

The drop bear is a hoax in contemporary Australian folklore, featuring a predatory version of the koala(although koalas are marsupials and not bears). Drop bears are described as unusually large and vicious koalas that attack unsuspecting people or other prey that walk beneath their trees.
The tales about drop bears dropping down on people’s heads are generally used to frighten tourists and amuse locals.
