Play with dingo puppies Ghost and Phantom at Sydney Zoo

Two dingo pups, aged just 10 weeks old, have joined the pack at the new Sydney Zoo in Doonside.

The cheeky pair, who arrived last month, are making themselves at home and are ready to meet guests in a dingo puppy play encounter.

Guests will go behind the scenes and play, cuddle and take a selfie with the puppies.

Zookeeper Tara Gunter said: "Ghost, who is pure white, has a great sense of adventure and a love for chasing keeper's boots, while Phantom is a little more reserved than his brother and loves bathing his belly in the sun and posing for photos."

The puppies play a crucial role in raising awareness for their species. Dingoes are apex predators and help Australia's ecosystem by maintaining populations of both feral and native species.

The dingo play encounters will be offered for the rest of November.
