  • The findings, published in the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society over the weekend, compared the sizes of dingoes that lived in three baited regions (Kalgoorlie, Pilbara and pastoral South Australia).
  • Female dingoes had the biggest growth spurt: their skulls increased by 4.5 millimetres.
  • Male skulls grew by 3.6 millimetres, or 6 per cent body mass.
