The Weredingo: Werewolves of the Outback

The Weredingo is the only werewolf breed native to Australia, only thriving in the Outback as it transforms each full moon. When somebody is bitten by a Weredingo, instinctively the beast from within will head toward the Outback to find a pack and will force the human that it changes back into to stay there (even if the person leaves the desert). The only times a Weredingo will bite a human is if the creature itself feels threatened or is about to come into contact with death, in which the creature must find a way to pass on it's genes to the next generation. The venom of a Weredingo identically matches an average werewolf and will infect anyone that's human. Though solitary hunters, they live in packs of fourteen to twenty members for social means such as mating and communication. The Weredingo is bound with only desert areas and even if the person manages to find a way out of the country, the person will soon wake up in a nearby desert after his/her transformation.

Weredingoes are designed for both brute strength and swift speed. Being able to run up to sixty mph in open areas, they can chase down anything that lives in the area (including desert vehicles used by humans). They aren't as aggressive if left alone and are calmly approached but, will attack if the intruder is going to hurt it in anyway. Weredingoes, like all Were-Beasts, are weakened or killed by silver. Weredingoes are carnivorous and will eat anything that's edible. Females are smaller and slender than the larger and muscular males but, both are equally fit. Mating only happens three times in a Weredingo's lifespan: as soon as it arrives to an accepting pack, when the human turns to an age between forty and fifty-seven; and a few years before the creature is about to die.

When a dying Weredingo (illustrated above) gets to an age when it knows it will die, the creature will instinctively travel to the same area where it was bitten by the previous attacker the first time to search/hunt it's successor.
