Pure bred dingoes, Canis lupus dingo arrived at the zoo in 2013 as a brother and sister duo. The male was named Kupali, meaning ‘younger brother’ and Lowanna meaning ‘girl’ in indigenous language.
The dingoes receive ongoing training by our zoo keepers helping them cope with situations where they might require veterinary care. The dingoes also undertake obedience training, learn fun tricks and scent detection to help keep them mentally stimulated.

Dingoes do not bark but howl like a wolf.
