    Thanks for that another worry to add to the list! So seeing as one in ten ozzies have been attacked someone on here must have experienced it or know someone - until then I'm not convinced (but will not be walking under trees at night just on case ;)

    I was walking home from partying in the city one night (bus only goes so far lol), when I was very nearly attacked by a drop bear. There are these huuuge eucalyptus trees at the bottom of my road - although I've heard they hide in different types of tree. I heard this grunting noise, I turned and saw the drop bear (like a koala but bigger) and started to run. I got a huuuge scratch on my back but I got away. :) So, be careful when walking home.

    And there lies a very real problem...drop bears are so like koalas it can be very hard to tell the difference in time :shocked:

     

    Does anyone survive to tell the tale?

    Actually I now have this vision of me walking along stamping my feet (as someone told me that scares the snakes off), with vegemite behind my ears and looking up into trees- higher probability of being sectioned I think lol!

    When I'm am less Chateau Collapsa I will repeat the tale of my meeting with a very bad tempered Koala - or was I lucky and had a narrow escape from a Drop Bear!!:shocked:

     

    I know I can clear our pool fence in one leap now!!!:shocked:

     

    My Aussie mates still chuckle about this incident,:biglaugh:

    Sorry but I don't find that picture on a migration forum at all amusing, particularly since reading the news this week of the homeless guy in Florida having his face eaten off by another person.Yes by all means add to the myth of drop bears, but there is no need to put a graphic, and gory picture with it.

    You could have always just dropped me a polite PM asking me to remove it, I would have done so without question.:rolleyes:

     

    I have done so now.:wink::cute:

     

    All just a bit of fun, oft needed.

    It was a pretty 'R' rated pic :frown: so thanks for the new ones! You can be quite a reasonable kinda guy at times, hey?

    (Not sure if it's my imagination but is the third one wearing your teeth, Tyke? Just asking....)

    Hope that's just paranoia on your part, Pennyblack. I like to think everyone is equal on this site.

    You will all be happy to know it was actually me in the original post and Tyke posted with my full consent. Since then I have undergone 6 operations, extensive plastic surgery and am almost back to normal but still at the mere mention of the furry animals that fall from trees (can't even say the proper words) turn into a gibbering wreck. It's a real threat people and I was a lucky one, most don't survive. Remember when walking under trees "look up look out"

    Guest USA soon just SA

    The real question we should be asking is: "how do they taste, and are they hard to cook?" Put the little monsters on the defensive is what I say!

    Penny black, all your posts seem to be reporting someone.

     

    Anyway, I love the fact that this forum is slightly more laid back than most, and we can have a laugh. If we keep bowing down to those easily offended, nobody would ever say anything.
