Wild dogs are regarded as a pest by the Australian livestock industry. Determination of the age of free-ranging animals would be useful in developing and assessing the effectiveness of management strategies for such fauna. We have been examining techniques for determining the age of wild dogs and dingoes, using canine teeth removed from the skulls of known age animals. The skulls were obtained from a collection of wild dog skulls held at CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems, Canberra.
