A beautiful dingo in the wild at Ellery Big Hole.
Dingoes Canus lupus dingo are a separate sub-species of wolf Canis lupus lupus, and not descended from domestic dogs Canus lupus familiaris that went feral several thousand years ago. They can interbreed with domestic or feral dogs though and not all wild dogs in Australia are purebred dingoes. The one in the photo above is a fairly typical looking dingo, with characteristic ginger coat and white socks, but you do sometimes see black and tan ones. They don't generally bark, but if you are in the outback it is not uncommon to hear them howling at night. This one was clearly a little bit habituated to people, but hopefully was not being fed by campers in the area. That leads to them becoming a nuisance, with no fear of humans, and they have to be removed.
