- Habitat: Coyotes are known for how well they adapt to different environments. They can be found in a wide range of habitats: grasslands, shrub-steppe, boreal forests, even highly urbanized areas. Coyotes have a central den site used for rearing pups and sleeping. The den can be a burrow dug into the ground, under a downed tree or in thick brambles and culverts. Coyotes are territorial and will mark their area with urine.
- Diet: As omnivores, Coyotes adjust their hunting style to what foods are available. They hunt small prey alone and larger animals in small packs. They can reach speeds up to 43 mph and jump distances over 13 ft during pursuit. Because they are nocturnal, Coyotes are most active between dusk and dawn. They will eat rodents, birds, snakes, small deer and antelope, insects, fuits and berries, but also garbage, livestock, poultry and pets.
