Southern Western Australian Dingo is now Extinct! So Sad

WA Dingo Association – Dingo Facts

By all definitions a native animal which is historically documented by all explorers from 1600’s onwards.
It has adapted and evolved to be a unique Australian species over 5 – 10,000 years. Rock art and fossil remains evidence the antiquity of the species as a naturally evolved canine without any of the specific selected traits associated with interference by man. The dingo colonised the entire mainland of Australia, yet is now only to be found in remote and inaccessible fragmented habitats not seen as useful to humans.

* Now scientifically proven to be a keystone trophic modulator for bio-diversity in all its habitats. Where the dingo is in stable social habitation small native species survive in a healthy state including Bilbies, Quolls and rare wallabies and possums. Where the dingo has been “controlled” read: exterminated – these same small native creatures have fallen into local extinction due to fox and cat predation. After 100 years of the Dingo Barrier fence the once “fertile pasture” is now nothing but barren bedrock, while the “outside” continues to support healthy native vegetation and many rare species

* The dingo is our only natural selective suppressant of foxes, feral cats, rabbits, wild pigs and goats. Non-selective toxins can never hope to emulate natural modulation by predator species. All healthy ecosystems exhibit healthy prey species such as eagles, small raptors, goannas. Where they are absent – so is biodiversity. That is the key to the aboriginal regard for the dingo

Dingo

The Dingo is Australia’s wild dog. It was probably introduced to Australia by Asian seafarers about 4,000 years ago. Its origins have been traced back to a south Asian variety of Grey Wolf (Canis lupus lupus). Recent DNA studies suggest that Dingoes may have been in Australia even longer (between 4,640-18,1000 years; Oskarsson et al 2011), however, the earliest undisputed archaeological finding of the Dingo in Australia has been dated to 3,500 years ago

tandard Common Name
Dingo

Identification
The Dingo, Canis lupus dingo, is a placental mammal which means it gives birth to live young, feeds its young via mammary glands that produce milk and has fur or hair of some form. The colour of a Dingo’s coat is largely determined by where it lives. The ‘standard’ coat colour is ginger with white feet. However in the desert areas, the fur is more golden yellow while in forested areas the fur can be a darker tan to black. The body fur is short while the tail is quite bushy.

Its dog-like appearance with a relatively broad head and erect ears, makes the Dingo Australia’s largest mammal carnivore. With canine teeth longer than those of a domestic dog, the dingo’s muzzle is also longer and tapered.

Size range
Shoulder height: 440-620mm, Body length: 860-1230mm, Tail: 260-380mm, Body mass: 12-24kg.

Distribution
Having been in Australia for over 4,000 years, Dingoes inhabited many parts of mainland Australia but never became established in Tasmania. After European colonisation and the growth of pastoralisation, there was a concerted effort to remove Dingoes from farming areas. As a result, Dingoes are mostly absent from many parts of New South Wales, Victoria, the south-eastern third of South Australia and from the southern-most tip of Western Australia.

Dingoes are regarded as common throughout the remainder of Australia except in the arid eastern half of Western Australia, nearby parts of South Australia and the Northern Territory.

Western Spotted Frog | Western Australian Museum
http://museum.wa.gov.au/explore/frogwatch/frogs/western-spotted-frog

This species is one of the more conspicuous in its patterning. The background colour is a medium to chocolate-brown, while the body is coloured with numerous white to pale yellow spots several millimetres in diameter. The maximum length for this species is 10 cm, and, as with other members of the genus, it has a robust, globular build with powerful hind limbs and large protruding eyes. Males have a large sharp spine on the first finger.

Breeding Biology
Males dig burrows in low-lying areas that become inundated after autumn and winter rains. Males call from within the burrow to attract females after which eggs are deposited at the bottom of the burrows in damp soil. The eggs masses of this species are white and foamy. As many as 600 eggs may be laid in each mass. Rising water levels of swamps and creeks caused by winter rains eventually flood the burrows, allowing the tadpoles to wriggle free of the egg mass and swim out of the burrows. Males only call for a month or so after the first rains in autumn.

Tadpoles are dark to pale brown with a series of thin, light coloured lines on either side. Tadpoles may be found in flooded burrows during early stages of development. Eventually they are washed in to larger water bodies where they are usually located on the bottom close to aquatic vegetation which they use for cover when disturbed. Development takes from 2-3 months.

Habitat
The Western Spotted Frog occupies the margins of temporary water courses and swamps in the wheatbelt and other semi-arid regions.

Etymology
albo means ‘white’ and punctatus means ‘spot’; thus, ‘white-spotted’.

General
Western Spotted Frogs are known to interbreed with the moaning frog where they co-occur in the Darling Range behind Perth.
