1 Coyotes are relatives of wolves that live in North and Central America. Just like wolves, coyotes are excellent hunters. They run fast (40 miles per hour) and have acute senses of vision, smell, and hearing. Coyotes hunt animals like fish, mice, rabbits, sheep, and deer. Coyotes are not picky about their food choices. If they cannot make their own kills, they don't mind eating decaying flesh (or carrion) as well as insects, snakes, fruit, and even grass.
2 Coyotes have pointed ears, long snouts, and black-tipped bushy tails. Their coats are a grizzled buff color. They measure 28-38 inches in body length and 12-15 inches in tail length. They weigh 20-50 pounds. Coyotes are loners who like to come out during the nighttime. Though solitary, they are not secretive. In fact, their being so vocal is a guarantee that we are more likely to hear a coyote before seeing it. Coyotes can make all sorts of sounds. They howl, yelp, and bark to announce their presence and territory, to attract a mate, to dissuade intruders, or to call to their offspring.
