A hoax, a fiction, a legend … Often spoken about but little known, the Drop Bear is one of Australia’s most contested species, suggested to exist only as urban myth to scare tourists.

This book proves otherwise. The Thylarctos plummetus (aka ‘Drop Bear’) is very much alive! The notes and sketches on these pages form a collection of findings from a two year survey in pursuit of the world’s most mysterious marsupial. Prepare to meet the Drop Bear.. Illustrated by Chris Edser.
