Transcript of Bethany - Living Things
*Dingoes rarely bark but sometimes they howl at night to scare off animals or to call other dingoes.
*Like dogs they go to the toilet on grass to mark their territories.
*Dingoes work in pairs.
*Dingoes move around a lot in the night.
*Dingoes also do a thing called ambush or rushing. This is where the dingo suddenly rushes at another dingo, knocking it over, which starts a play fight. Play fighting can include the dingoes mouthing, nipping and biting each other, as with all dogs.
About a dingo
Places to find dingoes include the mainlands of Australia and Jirrahlinga. Sadly when we went to Jirrahlinga the dingoes weren't there because they were having a rest. They originally came from China. Dingoes are extremely rare! Dingoes live anywhere in Australia but not Tasmania. Dingoes would love to live right next to the forest but they often live in the desert. Like humans they can't breathe under water. The desert is extremely hot and dry. Sometimes when it rains it can get very cold. Some people call the desert "Death Valley" or a place with no return. Temperatures can get up to 45 degrees! At night the temperature can fall to 3 degrees.
Dingoes eat a few animals but they mainly eat wallaby and kangaroo. They are also known to eat rabbits, wombats, possums, gliders, rats and mice. A dingo has no natural predators but if the dingo tries to threaten a farmers livestock (that's sheep, cows and that stuff) they shoot them. Other than that a dingo has no other predators.This is a dingo eating food.
A dingo is a medium size dog that weighs between 13-24kg. Male dingoes are usually heavier than female dingoes. They are a very sandy yellow or a red ginger colour. They have a very bushy tail. They have pricked ears for hearing. I love the dingo as it is one of my favorite animals. A dingo is a mammal. A mammal does not have scales, it does not have feathers but most mammals have hair. They do not have gills and it does have bones inside its body. All mammals are warm blooded and give birth to live babies.

Why is a desert habitat important?
*A desert is important because if there was no desert the dingoes would have nowhere to live.
*There's not many people in the desert so there are less dingo predators there.
*There's lots of food for the dingo in the desert.
*The colour of a dingo blends in with surroundings.
*White tipped tail to atract prey.
*It has sharp ears for hearing.
*Good sense of smell.
*Sharp teeth to eat the kangaroo with.
*Long skinny legs so it can catch the kangaroo to eat.
*Male and female dingoes both look after babies.
*A dingo pair stays together for life.
*In Aboriginal languages, 'dingo' is warrigal, maliki, noggum, boolomo or mirigung.
*Sad fact: A dingo is endangered
