A remote island located in the [[Sacred Archipelago]] populated by rude, well-tanned people with funny accent started spreading the rumours that Drop Bears are not real.

Monsters of Godville
Drop Bear
Marsupialis sinister
DropBear.jpg
Class Almost a bear.
Habitat Any forested area. Originally Sacred Archipelago.
Description Large, arboreal, predatory marsupial.

Despite the rumours that Drop Bears don't really exist, they're now found all over Godville. They usually live high up in trees and drop down on their prey when it least expects it.

The (Non)Existence

A remote island located in the Sacred Archipelago populated by rude, well-tanned people started spreading the rumours that Drop Bears are not real. The whole point was to decimate the growing number of gullible tourists that started visiting the island more and more, even though the island lays so far south in the Qu'tox Ocean that it doesn't fit on any of Godville's maps. Tourists, after being lulled into the false sense of security by the locals, are often viciously attacked and usually lethally injured.

After giant eagle air travel has become more popular, Drop Bears started spreading outside of their original habitat in Sacred Archipelago. The most likely theory is that Drop Bears started attaching themselves to bellies of cargo eagles and travelled all the way across the ocean on to the mainland. They can be found all over Godville now since they have no other natural predators except for heroes and heroines (and we know that they're not very effective predators).

Victims that have been dropped on by Drop Bears rarely survive, meaning this hoax can go on unnoticed by the general public outside Sacred Archipelago.

Anatomy

Skeleton of a small Drop Bear

An average Drop bear's size is comparable to a large Biowolf or a smaller Bear Minimum. Their body is highly adapted for climbing and life in tree canopies — they have incredibly strong forearms with long sharp claws and strong hind legs.

Large canines and strong jaw.

Diet

Drop Bears used to hunt mostly large macropods native to Sacred Archipelago, but in recent years, they've started hunting any humanoid species as well. Their prey is generally much larger than themselves, but never stands chance since Drop Bears attack unexpectedly from above.

Common advice on how to avoid being attacked from locals (once you prove they really can't persuade you that Drop Bears don't exist) is using their sacred bread spread made out of beer yeast extracts. The victim rarely realizes that this will only make them more delicious and enticing for any Drop Bears around.
