New Guinea Singing Dogs may not be Bigfoot, but the two have more in common than one might originally think! Similar to that famous mythical creature, New Guinea Singing Dog sightings are extremely rare in the wild. In fact, there are only two confirmed pictures of these animals roaming free. Because of the dogs’ shy nature, more people in New Guinea have heard their calls out in the woods rather than have actually seen them.
Unlike Bigfoot, you can actually view New Guinea Singing Dogs in parks such as ours. There are only around 500 in captivity, and we at Wild Animal Safari are very lucky to have two at our park. Their singing is a distinctive howl that starts with a sharp pitch increase and reaches high frequencies towards the end. Their “songs” last anywhere from three to five seconds. Come hear the New Guinea Singing Dogs’ songs in our park’s walkabout — you’ll witness a truly rare creature not many get the chance to see for themselves!
