Dingo and Dead Wallaby
This morning I collected the three remote, motion-activated cameras we set up at a dead wallaby carcass two days ago, and hit paydirt! We caught a wild Dingo in the act of scavenging some of the rotting meat. This is a snippet from the low-res video.
Dingoes are Australia’s version of coyotes. They’ve only been here about 10,000 years and are basically just wild, brownish-colored dogs; they’re one of the top predators at Mornington Station (along with crocs). I heard some Dingoes howling near camp the other night, and have seen tracks everywhere, and Sara has seen two in the last week, but I have yet to properly set eyes on one. Soon enough! Meanwhile, it’s fun to watch our camera-trap video. You can see the two other remote cameras on the right side of the frame (neither one caught much of interest, so it’s good we set up three).
Hi Noah! Amazing job =) have nice days there and enjoy everything.
good luck and keep in touch.
