One of Australia's most dangerous native carnivores. Also known as the killer koala. Its Latin name is Phascolarctos Carnivora. It is not a true bear, but is closely related to the koala. It lives in trees and drops down onto passing prey below, killing and eating it. To deter it, spread strong-smelling substances such as vegemite or toothpaste behind your ears.
