Transcript of dingo2

Dingoes (part 2) Dingoes have had a large impact
on farming and livestock because
of their natural instinct to kill
livestock. Lots of livestock is
missing or dead because of dingoes.
Dingoes haven't had a huge impact
on the rainforest, they have only
made minor impact like scratching
bark off trees or crushing shrubs or
bushes in their haste to get away
from a predator or catch their prey. Females give birth annually to a litter of 1-10 pups, they are
pregnant for 60-70 days and usually
give birth between May and August except in
tropical regions where they give birth any
time of the year.
When the pups are born, the males begin
to be more defensive of their territory and
will try to protect the pups. Females usually
start breeding at the age of two and all the
pack members help care for the pups. There
are usually more male pups than females,
no-one really knows why.Some stronger pups
are killed by the alpha-female (leader of the pack)
because they are a threat to take her place. The
alpha-bitch is the main breeder in the pack and
will even kill her own pups if they'r a threat.
When the pups are three weeks old they leave
the den to join or make a pack. Most of the dingoes we see are bush dingoes which have adapted to living in the bush, they are 50-60cm tall and weigh around 13-20kg they are 115-125cm long from nose to tail tip. The males are larger than the females and have scruffy orangy colored fur, like a pups, their stomachs are usually a creamy white and they have white and black markings.Females are smaller than males and usually have longer fur and a darker fur colour. Their eyes can vary from yellow to orange to brown, and they have large canine teeth and erect ears. The tail length depends on what kind of environment and climate they live in, the most common tail length is 260-380mm and they have a small curve at the end. Other dingoes furs vary from tan,black,light brown and the very rare white dingo. Male dingo standing, female dingo sitting. Rare white dingo Deffensive male dingo Australian rainforest
