Transcript of dingo

Dingoes The name of the dingo has
changed several times since
it was first named Canis
Antarcticas. The name we
now use is Canis Lupis Dingo,
some other names are Canis
Familaris Dingo, Canis Dingo
and Canis Lupus Familaris Dingo. Five different dingo facts.
1.Dingoes are the only type of canine that can rotate their rists.
2.The dingo was originally
from South-east Asia, and was imported to Australia, it is now a native animal.
3.A dingo can turn it's head almost 180 degrees in every direction.
4.Dingoes were bought to Australia
5-10,000 years ago.
5.Dingoes can't bark but they
howl instead. Wild dingoes can live to around 10 years of age, but usually live for five or six. Domesticated dingoes can live for up to 15 years. The diet of a dingo consits of 170 different
species, from insects to buffalos. Some of
their common prey are red kangaroos, the
common wombat and dusky rat. Livestock
is only a small proportion of their diet and
most of the livestock they kill they don't eat.
Some dingoes eat domestic cats that have
escaped or been let out of their homes. Most dingoes scavenge
for their food, unluckily when they are scavenging
they come across rubbish that has been dropped,
which is why 10 percent of the dingoes diet is
made up of human's rubbish. Dingoes are
canivores but they will eat fruit and berries,
they usually hunt at night to avoid predators
and to catch their food sleeping. Dingoes on the
coast also feed on fish, seals,penguins and dead
birds. They generally drink one litre of water each
day, except in Winter when they have about half
a litre. Dingoes live throughout Australia except in Tasmania, they live in a wide range of different environments such as alpine, woodland, grassland, desert and tropical environments. Dingoes are very good at adapting to different environments. They usually live in small packs and sometimes alone. How many dingoes in the pack, the water and food can determine how much territory they have and where it is. Their habitat is starting to disappear as men take more of it away. Sometimes dingo dens are made in caves, rabbit holes or hollow trees. Woodlands Dingo pup Dingo pack
