- I am terrified of these drop bears. I was in the Army for 15 year and often had Drop Bear attacks when exercising in Shoalwater Bay in Central Queensland and occasionally (but not as often) in the Border Ranges south of Canungra. The only thing we were more scared of was 'Hoop Snakes' that would bask in the sun on high ground and when seeing unsuspecting prey (like soldiers) would grab their tail in their mouth to form a hoop and roll down the hill to attack us. I don't know their scientific details, taxonomy etc. but hope that someone in the museum could classify these dangerous creature.
