More About Coyote

  • The coyote is a member of the dog family.
  • In size and shape the coyote is like a medium-sized Collie dog, but its tail is round and bushy and is carried straight out below the level of its back.
  • Coyotes found in low deserts and valleys weigh about 20 pounds, less than half of their mountain kin, who can weigh up to 50 pounds. Desert Coyotes are light gray or tan with a black tip on the tail.
  • Coyotes of high elevations have fur that is darker, thicker and longer; the under parts are nearly white, with some specimens having a white tip on the tail. In winter the coats of mountain coyotes become long and silky and trappers hunt them for their fur.
  • The coyote's hearing is very acute and is used for detecting prey and avoiding danger. Movement and position of the ears are used to communicate mood and rank.
  • The coyote is one of 8 species of the genus Canis. Four of these are jackals of Europe, Africa & Asia. Other members of the genus include the Gray Wolf (C. lupus), the Red Wolf (C. rufus) and all the breeds of the domestic dog (C. familiaris).
  • The coyote is one of the few wild animals whose vocalizations are commonly heard.
  • The coyote has 5 digits on the forefeet, including the dewclaw (remnants of a 5th digit) and 4 digits on the hindfeet.
  • The coyote is digitigrade meaning it walks with only its toes touching the ground.
  • One of the most adaptable animals in the world, the coyote can change its breeding habits, diet and social dynamics to survive in a wide variety of habitats.
  • Alone, in pairs or in packs, coyotes maintain their territories by marking them with urine.
  • They also use calls to defend this territory, as well as for strengthening social bonds and general communication.
  • Coyotes can easily leap an 8 foot fence or wall. They have been spotted climbing over a 14 foot cyclone fence.
  • Only 5-20% of coyote pups survive their first year.
  • The coyote can run at almost 40 mph and can get over a 8' fence.
  • Coyotes can breed with both domestic dogs and wolves. A dog-coyote mix is called a "coydog."
  • The coyote is more likely afraid of you than vice-versa.
