Coyotes are highly adaptable and live in and around cities across the US, semi-arid environments, forested areas, prairies/grasslands, and mountainous terrain.  Coyotes are about 25-40 lbs.  They feed primarily on rabbits, rodents and insects, but they also eat carrion, lizards, snakes, fruit, vegetable matter and even fish.

Interesting facts:
  • Coyotes are monogamous and pairs remain together for several years, if not for life.
  • Males bring food for the family after pups are born.
  • Coyotes have a wide range of vocalization:  barks, growls, howls, yelps, high-pitched cries, wails, and squeals.
  • They are very skilled swimmers.
