A dingo on Fraser Island, Queensland

Although the dingo was the first species to be introduced to Australia, it has been here long enough to become a part of the natural ecosystem. The dingo replaced the thylacine (also known as the Tasmanian tiger) as a top-order predator across most of Australia, which probably contributed to its extinction on Australia’s mainland
