    "Drop bears" are a legend in Australia. Gullible tourists and, apparently, students are warned of these ferocious creatures that drop out of the trees to attack unsuspecting people.

    Ha ha! I bet loads of people fall for that one. How marvellous.

    I was partly confused by the first three words "Beware international students" - I thought I was being warned of the dangers posed by international students. To avoid ambiguity, it should say "International students beware - drop bears do kill".

    Well, legend or real, some of these are indeed scary: dropbear - Buscar con Google.

    PS: Of course, legend makes imaginative people find a way to some extra bucks!

    Please don't write entire posts in capital letters. It is the online equivalent of shouting.

    Furthermore, we need to know that you understand which words must be capitalised.
