  1. Can children do the dingo encounters?

    Dingoes are high functioning, highly sensitive animals, and although they generally display a good-natured temperament towards humans, we should never undermine the fact that they are top-order predators. Because young children can be prone to sudden outbursts of irrational, uncontrollable fear, it is safer to keep dingoes and young children apart.
