Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

A native canine closely related to dogs, the dingo has a broad head, pointed muzzle and erect ears.

Their fur is usually sandy-coloured or reddish brown but can occasionally be black, light brown or even white.

Dingos prey on rabbits, rats, marsupial mice, kangaroos, wallabies, birds and reptiles. They are more active at night than during the day and may be seen alone or in small groups.

Dingoes are generally very shy of humans but can be curious and watch from a distance.

Please remember that although dingoes look like dogs, they are wild animals. Never try to touch or feed a dingo in the park.
