Dingoes are native Australian mammals
The scientific name for a dingo is canislupus. Dingoes can be found in deserts, long grass and edges of forests. Some live on Fraser island.
Dingoes were brought to Australia 6000 years ago from Asia.
This kelpie sized wild dog is usually yellowish ginger but can be black and tan or even white and its weight is twenty four kilograms.
Dingoes take whatever prey is common at the time from insects to large mammals such as kangaroos.
Dingoes give birth to live young called pups.
Shooting of dingoes should be stopped so dingoes do not die out.
