Back to Search Results

Kakadu Wildlife. Dingo is a domestic dog which has reverted to a wild state for thousands of years and today lives largely independent from humans. <br />
<br />
The word most likely derived from the word "tingo" a term used by the aboriginal people to describe their camp dogs. Today they are shy towards humans.<br />
They hunt small mammals and are also known to scavenge on cattle and kangaroo carcasses, dead fish, peguins and washed up sea birds on the coast.
