Dingos are found throughout Australia and in scattered groups across Southeast Asia. Archeological evidence suggests dingos were introduced in to Australia about 3,500 years ago from Asia-probably China. The dingo is a medium-sized canid with a short, dense coat and unlike the domestic dog is does not bark but tends to howl.
The differing climates and habitats across Australia have given rise to dingos with varied appearances : Desert dingos are reddish, golden yellow, or sand coloured with a compact body size. Alpine dingos are the most rare and have a light cream coat and northern dingos have a finer stature and lack the double coat of the other two types.
Within a pack there is typically an alpha male and female pair to which other pack members submit. Male dingos are dominant over females. Breeding is restricted to one litter annually per pack, born to the alpha female. The gestation period is 61 to 69 days and the average litter size is 5. If a lower ranking female becomes pregnant, her pups are usually killed by the dominant female
