Australia Endangered Species: Dingo

Animal

Dingo is a subspecies of the wolf that lives in Australia. They have golden and reddish coat colors and live in groups. Dingos also live in Southeast Asia, and one theory is that they may have traveled from Southeast Asia to Australia thousands of years ago. Dingos are animals that attack humans and sheep, and are often exterminated. For that reason, it is also an animal designated as an endangered species.

Habitat

Dingos live mainly in Australia.

Characteristic

The dingo is 1m long and weighs 10-15kg. Dingos have tan hair and vertically standing ears. It is about the size of a medium to large dog and is quite ferocious. It inhabits the deserts, forests and grasslands of Australia. Basically, they form a flock and often hunt together. Kill rabbits, kangaroos, sheep, etc. under the holes and rocks of rabbits. It is very similar to the original dog species that was in Europe during the Stone Age. It is a nocturnal animal that often rests during the day.

Ecology

Dingos feed on small animals such as rabbits, rodents, birds and lizards, and can also eat fruits and plants. We sometimes eat garbage that humans have thrown away. The breeding form of dingos is embryonic, but they only give birth once a year. Usually about 5 animals are born, and when they are 6 to 8 months old, they become independent from their parents.

Endangered species

Although dingos are very abundant, they are exterminated every year because they attack sheep, humans, and even human-owned livestock. Humans have also been killed by dingos in the past. It is unavoidable that this is why the dingo is now designated as an endangered species. Although there are unavoidable circumstances, it is an animal that may become extinct in the future.

Breeding

Although some dingos have become human livestock in recent years, it may be dangerous for ordinary people to raise them because they can attack humans. Watch at the zoo or go to Australia.
