The Dingo is a wild dog that inhabits the dry plains and forests of Australia. Scientists are not sure of their origins; they may be the descendants of domesticated dogs brought to Australia over 3,500 years ago. Some Dingos are trained by Aboriginal Australian people as hunting dogs. They also used to be used as living blankets; a cold night was called a "three-dog night."

Anatomy: Dingos are a medium-sized dog. Most Dingos have short, yellowish-tan fur, but it can vary from black to cream colored. It has large ears, sharp eyes, and a keen sense of smell. Adults are about 3 ft (90 cm) long. These dogs don't bark but they sometimes howl.

Hunting and Diet: These wild dogs hunt alone or in small packs. They are nocturnal (most active at night). These carnivores (meat-eaters) eat rats, kangaroos, birds, rabbits, lizards, and some farm animals. They swallow meat in large chunks.
