Dingo Howling Video


The dingo communicates through a series of howls, growls, chortles, yelps, whines, chatters, snorts, purrs and barks. Its bark, which is used primarily as a warning, is short, monosyllabic and rarely used. A mother may use this sound to call its cubs back to the den if she suspects danger is near. A dingo’s howls consist of moans, bark-howls and snuffs. Their exact purpose is not fully understood but seem to occur more frequently during times of stress brought about by food shortages and dispersion as a means of advertising their location. Dingoes growl as a means of asserting dominance or when threated.
