We met one of Australia’s most iconic animals- the dingo! These canines are really neat and we so enjoyed watching the ones we spotted!
Location: Great Victorian Desert
Dingo Fun Facts:
- Dingoes are descendants of the Asian dingo. They are thought to have been introduced to Australia 3,000-4,000 years ago.
- They can be solitary or found in packs.
- Dingoes are the largest predator in Australia.
- Dingoes in the desert are reddish-brown in color and are smaller than their cousin.
- Dingoes have excellent vision and can turn their heads about 180 degrees.
- They have flexible wrist that gives them the ability to climb.
- Dingoes do not bark, but they yodel/howl.
Dingoes are quiet intelligent and often they are not loved by livestock farmers. They are predators you know! We think they are just the coolest!
