Default Biologist in New Guinea discovers wild "singing dogs"...

... thought to be extinct decades ago, but apparently alive and well.

"Singing dogs" are similar to dingoes, but are so called due to their melodious howl. All known specimens live in captivity, and the wild population was believed extinct-- until now.

Wouldn't it.

But I doubt that will happen.

Hopefully they will. Maybe some Carolina parakeets, or Passenger Pigeons, or Moas, or Dodos can turn up. The Coelacanth did, after all!

There are reports at times of Tigers being spotted in the Crasle Mt area, but nothing ever confirmed.

In the last couple of years, there have been reported sightings from Cape York and Busselton, both about as far from Tasmania as you can get but still be in Australia.
