Dingo is well known as Australian wild dog, but it actually originates from Southeast Asia, where it can be found even today. Dingo can survive in different types of habitat. It usually inhabits woodland, grassland and edges of the forests with limited access to water. Fast spreading of European settlers across Australian continent led to accelerated loss of dingo’s habitat. Other than that, dingoes began to mate with domestic dogs. As a result, one third of remaining dingo population in Australia is a hybrid formed by mixing of genes of dingoes and domestic dogs. Number of pure dingoes is very small and they are considered endangered species.
