The Dingo is a wild dog that it is believed arrived in Australia about 4,000 years ago by Indonesian seafarers. It is
a lean medium sized canine with yellow or ginger fur. They are opportunistic carnivores that hunt rabbits, wombats, wallabies,
and even kangaroos. They are also known to hunt domestic animals and livestock which has resulted in the construction of
an enormous fence that stretches nearly six thousand kilometeres across the country.
