The ever popular Deadly and Dangerous series features some of Australia's most fearsome creatures, with the thirteenth coin in the program capturing the native dingo. This wild dog is believed to have arrived in Australia around 5,000 years ago. Often found throughout most of mainland Australia, they inhabit woodland and grassland areas that extend to the edge of forests.
