Thanks sweety.
He was one big wild dog that's for sure. I think he makes a great hood ornament though.

Oh so cool! How did you get the dingo skull?

Also wish I could get it but I live in the US and getting dingo items here is a pain. :x

Thank you very much, glad to hear you like it. Yes it is quite involved to import/export these kinds of things, it would be a shame to have something destroyed because it didn't meet a quarentine requirement.


I get all my Dingo skulls from my hubby, he traps the local farm area's all around here. Most of these skulls are actually Dingo X (Dingo cross) skulls as they interbreed with domestic dogs now which is why they are so much of a pest.
I have a neverending supply at the moment.

I know what you mean. :c It would be awesome to get a lifesize dingo pelt or even a skull, but the import/export is just a pain sometimes.

Ah, that it interesting to hear. I've heard that trapping dingoes is a big thing as they are try to help save the pure dingoes and not the ones that are Dingo mixes. Plus I imagine these dingo crosses are quite scary and not afraid of people.

Yes, you are absolutely correct with that. Pure Dingoes are becoming a rare thing, but even they are considered a pest on farmland and shot on site.

Pure Dingoes are protected within National Parks though but wild dogs are a class 2 pest and shot no matter where they are. There is a big battle going on over here with the greenies about it but I hope people can see that there really is NO PLACE for wild dogs in this Eco system. Feral animals kill over 300 million native animals every year and it's now threatening some with extinction.

You seem to have a good grasp on the problem though, these Hybrid mixes have little fear of people and form packs that cause a lot of problems.
I do however have a lot of respect for these Dingo crosses, they are a very tough survivor but they just don't belong here.

That's a shame they are still shotting the pure dingoes. You would think if your trying to save the "right" ones you be trying to kill only the hybrids.

And I know about Australia and their ever-going battle with pest/feral animals. I know the foxes have been a huge problem as well as people letting domestic animals like dogs and cat into the wild. I do agree that sometimes shooting them is the only way to help control the numbers.

And its something I researched once so I know a good deal about the dingo issue going on there. They are much like the wolf hybrid that people in the US breed here and sometimes escape into the wild. Also happens with coyotes which created fearless "coydogs."

Oh well maybe one day I can get something that is a dingo. Would be better if they let you guys sell dingo parts instead of letting them rotting in the sun. So much use can come from one dingo (pelts, skull, bones and such).
