This may not be something that won’t let you sleep at night, but you might find it interesting to know more about the most famous fences around the world.
Dingo Fence, Australia
Southeast Australia is separated from the rest of the continent by an impressive fence that is over 5,000 kilometers long! It is not only the longest fence in the world but also the most guarded, and its maintenance costs over 10 million US dollars annually. This construction is meant to protect domestic animals from the most dangerous beast in Australia – the dingo dogs. The electric current, passing through the fence, is an additional protection, and is generated by solar panels. This fence also separates the most populated part of the continent from the deserted areas.
