Dingo - Australia - Grasslands

Dingo (Canis lupus familiaris)
Dingoes are wild dogs that hunt a wide range of prey – even cooperating to bring down large mammals. Dingoes are not native to Australia. They arrived with Asian seafarers some 3,500 years ago and soon began competing for prey with the thylacine (a dog-like marsupial). Eventually, the dingo prevailed, perhaps because of its cooperative hunting style. Today it is found all over the Australian mainland. Thylacines disappeared sometime in the 1930s.
