Here are some coyote facts.
Size: 20-50 pounds
Diet: Rattlesnakes, fruit, black bear cubs, wounded or young ungulates, small birds, rodents, hares and rabbits, and carrion
Amount of pups in a litter: 5-7 pups in most areas. In very healthy environments they can have 9.
Competitors: Cougars, black and grizzly bears, wolves (as shown in wolfquest! Who else loves chasing them?), foxes and bobcats
Symbioses: They hunt with badgers and have been seen licking them. Hookworms are parasites.
Den behavior: A hollowed out tree stump or a den dug by another animal. Sometimes they will dig their own den.
Social behavior: They typically form packs but sometimes they live alone and band together with other non-related coyotes to hunt large prey

Feel free to leave other facts or questions! :wolf: :raven: :eagle: :beaver: :bear:

It appears that there is already a topic for coyote discussion-
..... General Coyote Discussion
There are other topics for coyotes over in the Other Canids forum as well, but this one seemed to be more relevant. As duplicate topics are not allowed, I will be locking this thread. Feel free to continue discussing coyotes in the existing thread linked above.
