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.
- 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.
