Drop Bear:


Carnivore Koala (Phascolarctos stillare)Referred to by locals as the Drop Bear, though like it's cousin it is not related to bears.

Tree-dwelling marsupial of coastal eastern Australia. Unlike it's herbivorous cousin the Carnivore Koala is rarely seen, incredibly vicious it should be avoided at all costs. Virtually tailless, the body is stout and brown, with a pale tan chest and mottling on the rump. The broad face has a wide, rounded, leathery nose, small yellow eyes, and big fluffy ears. The feet are strong with elongated claws, believed to be used to aid in killing prey; the two inner digits of the front feet and the innermost digit of the hind feet are opposable for grasping.

The Koala is an opportunistic killer, typically leaping on prey from the trees above it's target. Generally solitary, individuals move within a home range of more than a dozen trees, one of which is favoured over the others as the best chance of making a kill.

Both species belong to the family Phascolarctidae and are related to the ground dwelling Wombat. Unlike those of other arboreal marsupials, its pouch opens rearward. Births are single, occurring after a gestation of 34 to 36 days. The youngster (called a joey) first puts its head out of the pouch at about five months of age. For up to six weeks, it is weaned on the entrails of it's mother's prey. After weaning, the joey emerges completely from the pouch and clings to the mother's back until it is nearly a year old. This can prove deadly to a growing koala due to the method of obtaining food. A koala can live to about 15 years of age in the wild, as yet none have been successfully captured.

Canivore Koalas have suffered by the introduction of foxes and feral cats. Previously their only competition came from Dingos, Quolls and Thylacines, the latter two species have also been adversely affected by the introduction of non-natives. Though once again widespread, koala populations are now scattered and separated by urban areas and farmland, which makes them locally vulnerable to extinction. Another problem is the infection of many populations with Chlamydia, which makes the females infertile.
