[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The 'Fraser Island' Dingo is believed to be the purest strain of Dingo in Australia. They roam the beaches, bushland and rainforest freely and have become quite accustomed to the presence man.
Dingoes live for around 10 years and breed only once a year with litters of around 4-6 pups. They are predominantly a sandy yellow colour and sometimes tan with black. The habitat usually determines the colour. The dingo doesn't bark so they tend to howl at night sometimes to help keep the family together and no doubt act as a deterrent for others.

The dingo is a scavenger and will act quickly to steal anything unguarded that smells like a bit of good tucker, particularly fish and its remains.
