THEY have spent their first few weeks of life at the Australian Reptile Park informally dubbed the Pawsome Foursome, but now the Central Coast zoo is seeking public help to name some of their youngest tenants.
Australian Reptile Park general manager said they were opening suggestions to the public for the pups, who hail from mature dingoes Adina and Fred.
“As cute as the puppies are, they play a crucial role in raising species awareness,” Mr Faulkner said.
“The dingo is so important in the Australian ecosystem, Australia has the worst mammal extinction rate on earth due to habitat distribution, agriculture, and most importantly, feral foxes and cats feeding on mammals that are in the critical weight range of five kilos or less.”
“Dingoes are being blasted, baited, tracked, shot and hunted in the wild because of their perceived damage to agriculture.”
“We cannot wait to see what the public end up coming up with! I’m sure there will be some interesting names throughout the bunch.”
