Coyote is a carnivore of canine family in North America. Its body shape is similar to that of domestic shepherd dogs. More than 200 years ago, their activity area was limited to the northwest of the United States, but it has expanded to almost the whole of North America.
Coyotes used to be active during the day, but under the pressure of human activities, they have mainly appeared and haunted at night. Coyotes live about 10 years, and the highest record is 18 years.
Coyotes are not as good as wolves in groups. Most hunting is done independently. Sometimes small families cooperate. Mainly at night, but also during the day. Will dig their own holes, but prefer to occupy the burrows of marmots and badgers for nothing.
