Yes, on Fraser Island. The ones living over there are the last pure bred dingoes (everywhere else they interbreed with domestic dogs). They're beautiful, but unfortunately now the island is more crowded and such a popular tourist spot and people have fed them and gotten them too used to associating humans with food tragedies have happened. :(
I have not seen any dingoes in the wild,but a friend of mine rescued a pup whose mother had been killed by a car,and he raised it from a still nursing baby to a very faithful pet.This animal was so beautiful in its nature and I feel it is due to the great job my friend did in teaching and training it. I have seen a lot of these beautiful native dogs in the sanctuary here and when they have had pups,it was a real thrill for every one who saw them grow up.
It was smashing half a hamburger bun against a rock, until it got it to approx four equal little bits. It then proceeded to eat it, little piece by piece.
This interesting scene took place about 15' away from tent.
So if it had to do this, with something that small, wonder how a dingo could carry anything bigger, heavier, & ungainly................hmm.............
Oh! Rice, you're SO far off track!
A Parenti is a large goanna, with a poisonous bite. Saw one raking over our fireplace the next morning. He would've been about 5-6' head to tippy-tail, & a good 15-20" waist. Something definitely NOT to be toyed with!
