Well this is a special Friday in that Drop Bears deserve some seasonal recognition yeh?

A couple or more links proving them a serious Family BBQ gathering for the next week or so. Take serious note and try staying away from Bundy Rum so as to not get totally stuffed up inner sentience 2017.

http://alert-conservation.org/issues-re ... ly-thought

http://www.australiangeographic.com.au/ ... tudy-says/

So make sure that you visit the ultimate reference if any loved one is even remotely traveling in the bush with no guide. Seriously.

http://australianmuseum.net.au/drop-bear

They are real and should be avoided. If cornered away from your mates then Bundy Helps, but Ya have to relinquish an arm or willy as well to survive.

They take "Trophies" so pay attention and keep your piss-head Mates close.

Drop Bear distribution map
Photographer: © Australian Museum

Standard Common Name;
Drop Bear

Identification;
Around the size of a leopard or very large dog with coarse orange fur with some darker mottled patterning (as seen in most Koalas). It is a heavily built animal with powerful forearms for climbing and holding on to prey. It lacks canines, using broad powerful premolars as biting tools instead.
Size range 120kg, 130cm long, 90 cm at the shoulder.

Distribution;
Drop Bears can be found in the densely forested regions of the Great Dividing Range in South-eastern Australia. However there are also some reports of them from South-east South Australia, Mount Lofty Ranges and Kangaroo Island.

Habitat;
Closed canopy forest as well as open woodland on the margins of dense forest. Never encountered near roads or human habitation.

Habitat type;
Vegetation Habitat: closed forest, tall closed forest, tall open forest, tall open shrub-land

Feeding and Diet;
Examination of kill sites and scats suggest mainly medium to large species of mammal make a substantial proportion of the animal's diet. Often, prey such as Macro-pods are larger than the Drop Bear itself. Drop Bears hunt by ambushing ground dwelling animals from above, waiting up to as much as four hours to make a surprise kill. Once prey is within view, the Drop Bear will drop as much as eight metres to pounce on top of the unsuspecting victim. The initial impact often stuns the prey, allowing it to be bitten on the neck and quickly subdued.
If the prey is small enough Drop Bears will haul it back up the tree to feed without harassment from other predators.

Feeding Habit;
Carnivorous

Mating and reproduction;
Breeding occurs during summer and usually one baby, or joey, is produced each year. After six months in the pouch, the joey is gradually weaned from milk.

Danger to humans and first aid;
Bush walkers have been known to be 'dropped on' by drop bears, resulting in injury including mainly lacerations and occasionally bites. Most attacks are considered accidental and there are no reports of incidents being fatal.
There are some suggested folk remedies that are said to act as a repellent to Drop Bears, these include having forks in the hair or Vegemite or toothpaste spread behind the ears. There is no evidence to suggest that any such repellents work.

Classification;
Species: Plummetus
Genus: Thylarctos

Further Research as to celebrating or holding observance to any known and recognised religious observance is ongoing.

:lol:

I want to thank the two correspondents who contacted me regarding their families’ experiences with Drop Bears, though in respect of Mary T.’s great aunt and her reputed hairy companion or “pet” I admit some confusion as to who did the dropping. Of great historical interest however is my second correspondent who reports on stories told to him by his grandfather of his own grandfather, who lived on Kangaroo Island in the early nineteenth century. At that time the island was a base for whalers, sealers, escaped convicts and even pirates. According to my correspondent, Drop Bears were as plentiful as Kangaroos, but far less pleasant eating, so while Kangaroo populations deteriorated from hunting, Drop Bears were only killed in self-defence; they were affected however by the local timber industry, and the felling of forest tree for building and for ships’ repairs. In some areas they disappeared as their habitat declined, but my correspondent’s ancestor described a quite remarkable adaptation by Bears in at least one region of the island – they learned to launch attacks from the ground. Apparently they would hide in undergrowth beside animal tracks or even human pathways, and leap out at passing prey, fastening on to their lower extremities. In fact one particular strain (according to my correspondent’s ancestor) took to disguising themselves as largish tufts of dried grass, or piles of windblown leaves and twigs, even dried logs, and lying on the pathways. Just as animals or humans ventured to step over them, they would leap upwards, gripping their prey with their teeth. Interestingly (he says), and we must be mindful that women were very much a minority on the island in those lawless days, the only reports of attacks on humans were on men, and the injuries were something fierce. Locals came to rename this strain of the animal Jump Bears, but my correspondent reports that his grandfather’s grandfather called them Squirrels. This (he says) was partly due to a sort of nostalgia for European woodlands and woodland animals for which there were no counterparts on the island and therefore no cause for confusion in the name, but mainly because they took nuts.

And further hysterical/historical studies have now been reported from ancient family records. Impeccable reference material now coming to light after exhaustive elbow bending research from across the globe.

Further research and historical documentation is being gathered for a Peer Review late 2019.

Stay tuned and remember to keep Baws from down-under attack at all times.

Stout British or Non-Scot open wear is recommended for the duration.

Your Baws are YOUR Responsibility at all times.......

Aye
