Hi everyone! I'm Kalli, here from Adelaide, Australia, where we do have kangaroos in the road but not drop bears since they are actually a myth someone made up to scare people into being careful around the actually dangerous animals.

My favourite of Sean's movies is The Hitcher. I write fic and make caps.

I look forward to meeting everyone!

Welcome Kalli. I hope you have a lot of fun here. What is a "drop bear" - I have not heard of this animal?

A drop bear is a fairy tale some more nasty Australians tell to frighten non-Australians.

Most people have heard of koalas, which are the furry grey cute bear-like marsupials with fluffy white ears, like Blinky Bill. Well, a drop bear is meant to be a koala with fangs that will jump on you if you walk under it, and you're supposed to put Vegemite behind your ears to deter it. It is an urban legend designed to make tourists a) look silly and b) be careful about native vegetation and animals, some of which is actually deadly but looks cute.

I'm sure Our Sean would be able to fight one off, but most damage koalas do is scratching people who try to hold them, and getting scared in populated areas if they go looking for food. We actually have nets over dividers on our highways so that koalas can cross the road. ;)

Wow! I wish I could go to Australia! In the U.K., they have special crossings for hedgehogs.
