copyright teaching treasures publications

The dingo is like a wild dog and lives in Australia. It howls at night and can sound quite scary. It howls because it cannot bark like a dog. Dingoes like to eat other small animals like wallabies, possums, mice and birds. Aborigines used to keep dingoes as pets.

Only some areas of Australia have dingoes. You will not find dingoes everywhere as these animals like it where not many people live. Deserts and the outback, the bush, hills and mountains are areas where not to many people live.

Draw a picture of a dingo.
