The Australian Reptile Park in the Central Coast region of New South Wales, Australia, has much more than just reptiles (although their reptile collection is impressive). One of the residents is this fella – The Dingo. The wild dog of Australia looks like so many mixed-breed dogs here in the U.S. that I just wanted to hop into the enclosure and give him a hug. I am sure that wouldn’t have gone over very well, with the Dingo or the staff! LOL!!
