Coyotes are seldom seen but often heard

August 14, 2010

The COYOTE is a dog-like mammal, thinner and much lighter weight than a true wolf. They are survivors from a time at least 1.8 million years ago during the Pleistocene epoch of earth history. Coyote body length is typically 30 to 34 inches. Its tail may be another 12 to 16 inches. Weights range from about 15 to 45 pounds. Coyotes in Canada may have bigger bodies than its southern USA cousins, an adaptation that helps the animal keep warm in colder climates.
