"They do go for the legs", Mitchell says, deadpan, as he hands her a pair of knee-high motorcycle boots.

"I'm a bit anxious why I need this level of protection", Edward said in the video.

The fictional drop bear is well-established as a myth in Australia.

"They're bigger, they've got longer claws, they've actually got really small fangs, and the interesting thing about the fangs is they have a really mild venom, it's not like a snake venom that can make you really sick, but it just causes a lot of really local irritation", he said as a anxious Edward listened on.

He claimed: 'The 3rd most usual injury we see from visitors in Australia is in fact from a decline bear assault'.

A video of the prank shared on social media showed Edward being kitted up in the drop bear suit.

The koala was then handed to Edward, who looked terrified as she clutched the friendly marsupial. "Hook, line and sinker!"

The thing is, the "drop bear" is just a cuddly koala - a long-running hoax on the continent played on unsuspecting outsiders.

"It all unfolded very quickly", the cameraman said.

Experts say at least half of the 60,000 koalas on the island have been killed.

"In times of tragedy and incessant misery, sometimes humour is the best medicine", he posted on Facebook, directing viewers to a Gofundme page for Kangaroo Island's koalas.

In his Facebook post, Mulcahy wrote, "If you enjoyed this video, please don't let Debi's humiliation be in vain".

"Please donate directly to help the park who are treating these koalas".

Miss Edward was covering the devastation caused by bushfires on Kangaroo Island, off the coast of South Australia, on Saturday.

Just days earlier, Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park owner Sam Mitchell, seen in the video, and four other close friends and family members stayed behind to defend their charges in the face of a raging inferno on the island.
