ABSTRACT
Dingo, or Warragal, a dog of Australia. It is both wild and domesticated. It is about two feet (60 cm) high at the shoulder and is up to four feet (120 cm) long, including a one-foot (30-cm) tail. The dingo usually is rusty red or tawny, with white paws and tail tip. The dingo does not bark but yelps and howls like a wolf. It is found on the open plains and in forests. It feeds mainly on small animals such as rabbits. Because wild dingoes occasionally attack domestic sheep and cattle, they are killed by ranchers.
