We were talking about the dangers of OZ. Take a look at the deadly drop bear.....

Sad to say, the Internet has made most of our tourists highly skeptical that it actually exists, and it’s become difficult to convince tourists that the only way to scare them off is to smear Vegemite behind their ears (they don’t like the smell).

Of course, sometimes you get lucky, as a mutual acquaintances was when he was camping with one such skeptic. The visitor went outside to relieve himself, and by a prefect coincidence the high winds dislodged a large male koala from the tree he was using. It, snarling in fury (and an angry koala is an alarming beast), promptly headed back up the tree.

The tourist staggered back into the tent - still unzipped - and stammered “It just missed me… and then it went back up for another go.”

Plus, of course, koalas are dangerous in their own right. Chlamydia is rampant, and one of the strains they carry can jump species. And of course, their claws are sharp and powerful, and their jaws, like many marsupials, ridiculously overpowered compared to the equivalent placental.

Then of course, the 'hoop snake':

But then, Aussies were never any good at straight lines......

I have a hard time convincing non-Texans of the dangers of both the jackalope:

And the chupacabra:

Or even of how we routinely have to patrol around our cattle, mounted upon our domesticated jackalopes, to protect them from the chupacabra menace:
