Dingo Facts | Australia North Wildlife Guide
Their lifestyles are very similar to those of the North America gray wolf. They are occasionally solitary, but also live in packs. They are opportunistic predators that hunt small game, but will also take advantage of carrion, fruits, vegetation and, unfortunately, domesticated sheep. This predilection for easy, domesticated prey led Australian ranchers to build the longest fence in the world–a 3,500 mile long
They are one of the few placental mammals that existed on the Australian continent before the arrival of Europeans, but they are believed to have been introduced only 4,000–5,000 years ago by Indonesian seafarers. Today, more than one-third of all dingos in Australia are considered to be hybrids with domestic dogs.
