Taronga Zoo welcomes two dingo pups

Two adorable dingo pups have made Sydney's Taronga Zoo their new home.

Five-month-old Kep Kep and Warada are just two of the new arrivals part of the Nura Diya wildlife experience that focuses on native flora and fauna.

The pair, one male and one female, were named after the region where they were born and will make their public debut on December 9, just in time for the summer school holidays.

The male named Kep Kep was born in Wathawurrung Country in Victoria and named after the Wathawurrung word for sweet.

The female Warada was born in Dharug Country NSW and was named after the Dharug word for beautiful.

Taronga Zoo Keeper Natalie Holdsworth said the duo were the perfect pair.

"Like his name suggest, Kep Kep is incredibly sweet, very friendly and adores people," she said.

"On the other hand, Warada is very switched-on, alert and enjoys checking out her surroundings and surveying her territory."

Animal lovers will be able to do more than say hello to Kep Kep and Warada this summer with the launch of the daily Dingo Keeper Talk and Dingo Encounter program.

It aims to educate visitors on the important role the apex predators play in the Australian wildlife ecosystem.

Zoo visitors will also have the chance to play with Kep Kep and Warada by joining keepers as the pups interact with the new behind-the-scenes Dingo Encounter.
