Drop Bear

The minor differences between a drop bear and a koala are discernable only to trained naturalists. A drop bear can even imitate the sleepy demeanor of its genetic cousins as a sort of behavioral camouflage. Because drop bears can so easily be mistaken for koalas, roughly one-third of all fatalities from drop bear attacks occur when well-meaning tourists try to pose with the creatures for souvenir photographs.
