Australian wild dog.
<i>Canis lupus dingo</i>
A pure wild dog, evolved from wolf origins but never domesticated by humans.
Thought to have come to Australia around 5000 years ago via asia.
Dingos are excellent hunters and scavengers.
They will take any vulnerable prey even unguarded human children.
For this reason Dingos are both feared and admired in Australia.
Factoid: Dingoes do not bark.
Dingoes were bought to the worlds attention when one took a tourist's child near Ularoo.
"A Dingo's got baby!"
-- Lindy Chamberlain 1980
