AUSTRALIAN DESERT DINGO
by Noah Sharpe
Dingo's barks are similar to coughing and it is used to send a warning to the pack or to defend their territory. Dingo dogs howl, they have three types of howling and these are moans, bark-howls and snuffs. How often the dingo howls depends on each dog, by the food shortage, by the time of the day. Groups of dingos use howling to express different feelings towards one of the group members. Another thing dingo dogs do is they show their teeth and they clash it, as they are ready to bite if they are angry. Dingoes also use scent marking and communicate by marking places with their urine or with their faeces.
Dingoes have pointed ears to help hear for any enemies that might get too close and to help keep cool. The colour of their fur helps them camouflage with their surroundings. their short fur also helps them to keep cooler.
