- Dingoes have pricked ears, bushy tails and a distinctive trotting gait. Their coats are typically ginger but some are sandy-yellow, red-yellow or occasionally black and tan. Most have white markings on their feet, tail tip and chest.
- Dingoes don’t bark, they howl. They have 3 different types of howls: moans, bark/howls and snuffs. Howling is used for long distance communications to attract pack members and repel rivals.
- Although dingoes are often seen alone, many belong to socially interacted packs whose members meet every few days.
- The Dingo is a primitive dog that evolved from the Plains Wolf of India. It is believed that Asian seafarers brought dingoes to Australia 4000-6000 years ago.
- The Dingo is my favorite animal.
