The Australian Reptile Park on the Central Coast of New South Wales has just become envied by a whole lot of Australians as five dingo puppies now call the park home.

If you're still reading this and not 'awwwww'-ing at the above footage here's everything else you need to know.

The five puppies were born in autumn and have been bred in captivity since then.

Their parents are Adina, 2, and Fred, 3, who are been resident dingoes at the park

Adina is an overachiever, as dingoes usually yield two to three puppies in each litter. Not FIVE.

There are three boys and two girls. And no, despite suggestions from The Huffington Post Australia's politics team, they have not been named after new wild senators (Paw-line Hanson, anyone?) elected over the weekend. The five pups are Cuddles, Tyler, Bob, Diamond and Caramello.

The Australian Reptile Park bred the dingo puppies to dispel the myth that dingoes are dangerous pests and protect the species from extinction.

"The dingo plays a very important role in the Australian eco-system," Tim Faulkner, General Manager of the Australian Reptile Park said.

"Dingoes are being blasted, baited, tracked, shot and hunted in the wild because of their perceived damage to agriculture. However, killing dingoes removes them from the critical weight eco-system, allowing feral foxes and cats to continuously increase the rate of mammal extinction."

Now for the important stuff. LOOK.
