The Dingo was introduced to Australia some 3000-4000 thousand years ago. Since the disappearance of the Tasmanian Tiger (thylacine) it is now Australia's largest surviving carnivore.
For some they are still seen as an introduced species and a pest, for others they are seen as endemic and beneficial for controlling introduced species such as cats and rabbits.
This Dingo resides at the Australian Reptile Park near Sydney.
Australia is fortunate to have wonderful, unique and iconic wildlife. This site is dedicated to promoting its enjoyment and preservation.
