Lucky and Rocky the dingo puppies have been given a chance to explore the Australian Reptile Park while it was closed due to a Covid-19 lockdown. The pups were chaperoned by keepers Hewin Hochkins and Nick Astermann on their adventures.

On their travels the pair were able to see many of the sites at the award winning wildlife park including the Lost World of Reptiles where they could see iguanas and snakes along with seeing the parks star attraction, Elvis the giant five meter long crocodile.

Lucky is a 13 week old pup who made headlines during her dramatic birth by C-section in May 2021. You can read our story on her birth here – Dingo Pup Hailed a Miracle After Emergency Birth

Keepers report that since her birth the pup has been going from strength to strength under the watch of keepers and parents Fred and Adina. Rocky joined the family from the Hunter Valley Zoo and has been providing company and a playmate for Lucky.

Australian Reptile Park Director, Tim Faulkner, said, “Playing with their siblings is an important part of socialisation for dingo puppies and we’re love seeing these two cuties grow up together and experience these kind of amazing moments.”

Tim added, “While this may be a strange time for everyone experiencing lockdown in Greater Sydney, these days feel normal for animals at the Reptile Park. Our keepers are constantly providing new experiences for the animals to explore and express their natural behaviours with and this gave the pups some excellent enrichment and gave them the chance to experience new sights, smells and surroundings!”

 

Mr Faulkner continued, “We are hoping this video has brought smiles to the faces of those who watched it! What is cuter than two dingo puppies?! We just hope we can have everyone back here to meet Lucky and Rocky in person soon once everything opens back up again!”

As part of efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19 the Australian Reptile Park is currently closed but you can keep up with what they are up to on their social channels. Each day they are producing education videos to help with home schooling.
