The Australian Dingo (In the outback)

The Australian Dingo

The Australian Dingo, at home in the Australian Outback

Aren’t they such a beautiful animal!

We took this photograph in the Channel Country, far Western Queensland.

You’ve just got to love the landscape, the flora and fauna, that makes the Australian Outback what it is!

    Beautiful photograph Baz. It brings to mind a quote that floated around for a long time based on a sad story , if true…Did the Dingo eat the baby? : )

      Thank you…

      It was a story the polarised a nation, and still does today to some extent. Wild aninals are just that, and should always be approached with caution, especially dingoes. There is a resident colony on Fraser Island (yes we have the largest sand island in the world) and it has been a problem with a number of serious attacks over the years. so for sure, they are quite capable of attacking…

    Great shot,yes they are beautiful, but they ate my 2 pigs the other night, they got the bacon.They are a problem out here but I still like them.Its very unfortunate that they have crossed with dogs and there are very few pure dingos left.

    This bloke looks like he could use a good campsite meal.

    Great pic Baz! Looks like a proper dingo, not like other ones you see photos of sometimes, fat from eating campsite food! Lol!
