Magical Animal Alphabet: Dropbear

As I continue my challenge, I find that some letters are easier to find animals for than others. 
Case in point is the letter D. The most common mythical animal is a demon or a daemon, or some derivative of that. This is way too vague. Also dragon. Way too predictable. But I did find this interesting variety of "magical" animal:

Now, I've never heard of this animal until I looked for a D magical critter. Turns out it is a part of a contemporary Australian folklore designed to scare tourists. It features a large and vicious carnivorous koala that live in trees and drop on the heads of unsuspecting prey walking beneath them.
