Animal You | Dingo | Stray dogs and fashion share many characteristics with Australian Dingoes South experts believe that if not "dingo" Australian sense of the word (which implies an independent animal, wild, integrated ecosystem), members of lupus taxon Canis dingo, a subspecies of Canis lupus special. A dingo has a relatively large head, a pointed muzzle and erect ears. Eye color varies from yellow to brown well. Compared to other similarly sized familiaris dogs, dingoes have longer snout, carnassials larger tusks and skulls flatter with large neck lines. The Australian dingo average 52-60 cm (20-24 inches) tall at the shoulders and measures 117-154 cm (46-61 inches) from nose to tail. The average weight of 13-20 kg (29-44 pounds), but there are some reports of dingo weighing up outdoors 27-35 kg (60-77 lbs). Males are generally larger and heavier than females of the same age. Dingo northern and northwestern Australia are larger than Central America and southern Australia. Australian dingoes are heavier than those of Asia.

Like all domestic dogs, dingoes tend towards a phonetic communication, with the difference that the screams and moans fewer domestic dogs barking. During research, eight sound classes with 19 sound types can be achieved, often erroneously considered that dingoes do not bark. Compared to most other domestic dogs bark of a dingo is short and monosyllabic. During observations, the barking of Australian dingoes revealed relatively little variability, and subgroups of barking characteristic of domestic dogs was not found. Furthermore, only 5% of the bark observed vocalizations. Australian Dingo cortex swooshing only noise or a mixture atonal / tonal. Warn-barking in a series of typical gay and a "warning cry" in a typical heterogeneous series was observed. Additionally, dingoes emit an audible "crying", which are used primarily in the vicinity of a pool of water, probably to warn already present dingoes.

According to the current state of knowledge, it is not possible to get Australian dingoes bark frequently in contact with other domestic dogs. Whether dingoes bark or bark howl less frequently in general is not Dingoes have three basic forms of howling (moans, bark, mourn, and nose) with at least 10 variations. The frequency of howling varies depending on season and time of day, and is also influenced by breeding, migration, lactation, social stability and dispersion behavior. In addition, more often screaming in times of food shortage, because dogs more widespread in their habitat. Overall was crying less frequently than observed gray wolves. Occasionally a dog starts crying, and again most or all other dogs howl and bark occasionally. In the desert, dingo howl long distances to attract other members of the herd to other dogs to meet and repel the invaders. Dingoes howl in harmony with important steps and with an increasing number of packets members variability of rotation also increases therefore dingoes suspected suitable for measuring the size of a package without visual contact.

During observations, growling is 65% of the observed sounds. During observations of Germany, dingoes was a sound that observers called retired products. In addition to voice communication, dingoes communicate like all domestic dogs via scent marking specific objects (eg Spinifex) or places (waters, trails, hunting areas, etc) by chemical signals from the urine, feces and scent glands. Males scent marks more often than women, especially during the mating season. Unlike wolves, dingoes can react to social cues and gestures of humans The periods of activity are short (often less than one hour), with short rest periods.  During studies on dingoes in the highlands of Central Europe and Australia in captivity, reproductive cycle not observed. Unlike men captive dingo dingo photographed through the center of Australia showed a male reproductive cycle. Dingoes showed no interest in females in heat (this time other domestic dogs) outside the breeding season (January to July) and do not play with them.

In Southeast Asia, mating occurs between August and September. During this period, the dingoes actively defend their territory with sounds, controlling behavior, growling and barking. Under dingoes in captivity, was the pre-estrus observed over the last 10-12 days. In general, the only dingoes in a pack that successfully breed are the alpha pair, and the other pack-members help with raising the pups. Subordinates are actively prevented from breeding alpha pair and some subordinate females have a false pregnancy. Low ranking or solitary dingoes can successfully reproduce the structure of the group apart. Cubs subordinate females are usually killed by the alpha female, the population increase caused low even in good economic times. In Australia, the holes are mostly underground. Dingo young people tend to be independent at the age of three to six months, or disperse at the age of 10 months, when the next mating season.

When dingoes in captivity have survived 24 years are included. The main causes of death in the dingos are killings of humans, crocodiles and dogs, including other dingoes. Dingo are subject to the same diseases as domestic dogs. Today, 38 species of parasites and pathogens found in Australian dingoes. Dingo puppies can also kill lung worms, whipworms, hepatitis, coccidiosis, lice and ticks. Scabies is a parasitic disease transmitted by the dingo of Australia, but is rarely debilitating.
