Terra Mater LIVE: Dingos – Australia’s Wild Dogs

Terra Mater LIVE: Miracles of Life – Dingos
Wednesday, May 29, 2013 / 8:15-9:15 PM / Ars Electronica Center

(Linz, May 23, 2013) The next Terra Mater LIVE on Wednesday, May 29 sets its sights on Australia’s most dangerous and most successful hunter: the dingo. Possessing tremendous power and endurance, these wild dogs hunt in packs. And actually they’re not even native to Australia; scientists now believe that immigrants from what is now Indonesia brought them along about 5,000 years ago. Over the millennia, countless dogs escaped into the Australian outback, where they adapted to conditions prevailing in the wild and evolved into today’s dingos. Martin Mészáros, head of production at terra mater factual studios (TMFS), will moderate. Admission is free.
