this is my dad, he’s fire and rescue on Hamilton Island (the whitsundays) and because of the cyclone, he got to go and pick up the two dingoes from the wildlife park and take them to a keeper’s house! he’s gonna find out their names for me tomorrow.
they’re apparently super friendly and outgoing since they see people all day every day and were born in captivity! but most dingoes, even in captivity, aren’t like this. if you see one, leave it be, even at a zoo. most are not this outgoing. needless to say, though, my dad was very excited to get to spend time with Australia’s most taxonomically debated species.
