Australian Dingo Found To Be A Distinct Species
2014-04-02 07:05:34

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online When I think of a dingo, I think of a sad scene in the Tom Selleck movie, "Quigley Down Under" where the dingoes are attacking and Cora has to decide if she will repeat her mistakes, or let the aboriginal child cry. Like many of you, I'm sure, I considered them to be just another version of a coyote, no different from any other. A new study from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and the University of Sydney, however, reveals...

While we grapple with the impact of climate change, archaeologists suggest we spare a thought for Aboriginal Australians who had to cope with the last ice age. "The period scientists call the Last Glacial Maximum, or LGM for short, is the most significant climatic event ever faced by humans on this continent," Associate Professor Sean Ulm from James Cook University in Cairns said. Research recently published in the Journal of Archaeological Science sheds new light on the ways Aboriginal...

Dingoes Wrongly Accused Of Animal Extinctions
2013-09-10 17:32:10

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online Scientists writing in the journal Ecology say that despite popular belief, the Australian dingo should not be blamed for mass extinctions. Dingoes have been blamed for the extinctions of the Tasmanian tiger and the Tasmanian devil on the Australian mainland about 3,000 years ago. Instead, the scientists blame Aboriginal populations and a shift in climate. "Perhaps because the public perception of dingoes as 'sheep-killers' is so...

The Bunyip is from Aboriginal mythology. It is a large creature that lives in the swamps, creeks, riverbeds, and waterholes of South Eastern Australia. However, stories of the Bunyip have been told throughout Australia. Written accounts of the creature were made by European settlers in the mid-nineteenth century as they colonized across the country. Today’s translation of the word Bunyip in the Aborigine language means “devil” or evil spirit. The actual word Bunyip didn’t appear in...

The Bush Stone-curlew (Burhinus grallarius) is a species of ground-dwelling bird native to Australia. Although related to waders such as the oystercatchers, avocets and plovers, it is a more terrestrial predator and is more like the roadrunners of North America. It remains somewhat common in the northern Australia, but has become rare in the fertile south. Fox predation is considered to be one prime factor for the decline in population to some experts. However, in some areas where foxes are...

The Dingo or Warrigal is a wild dog most-likely descended from the Southern-East Asian Wolf, yet typically referred to as an Australian dog. The Dingo is still found throughout Southeast Asia as well as Australia, and was named in the language of the first inhabitants of Sydney after being brought to Australia about 3,500 years ago. The Dingo is slightly smaller than northern wolves and has an athletic build. It stands between 17 and 25 inches high and weighs 22 to 53 pounds. It usually...

The dingo (plural dingoes or dingos), Canis lupus dingo, is a type of wild dog, probably descended from the Indian Wolf (Canis lupus pallipes). It is commonly described as an Australian wild dog, but is not restricted to Australia, nor did it originate there. It originated in Africa. Modern dingoes are found throughout Southeast Asia, mostly in small pockets of remaining natural forest. They are found on the mainland Australia, particularly in the north. They have features in common with...
