>Okay. Next question -- how does one determine this? Nowadays we have DNA
analysis, but Linnaeus did not. What about the Dingo and the New Guinea
Whistling Dog, which are both wild descendants of domestic dogs?
Haven't Dingos been here in Australia longer than the white man? If that
is the case then I doubt they are descendents of domestic dogs. If they
ARE wild descendents, then how did they become so homogenous and distinct
in only 200 years being wild?
You've got me wondering now.
