Drop bears – an Australian menace

16 Jan

My first article recommendation of the new year is Indirect Tracking of Drop Bears using GNSS Technology by Volker Janssen. Australian Geographer, Vol. 43, No. 4, pp. 445-452, December 2012.

Analysis of the collected data provides valuable insights into the hunting behaviour of drop bears and has implications for a better understanding of the geographical distribution of other rare species, including hoop snakes and bunyips.

    My mum lived in the Blue Mountains. Coming down to Sydney in the train once, she overheard two earnest young men talking to an American woman tourist. Drop bears weren’t mentioned but they pointed out the deep ravines and muttered darkly to themselves about bunyips. The elderly woman happened to look up and saw the amused look on Mum’s face and their game was over.

      Brilliant! A number of my uni friends convinced visiting scholars that there were drop bears in the bush around Canberra.
