What is the physical description of a coyote?
Coyotes resemble wolves and dogs, to which they are related. Compared with gray wolves, coyotes are smaller and thinner, and they have a thinner face and muzzle (nose and mouth area). Coyotes also have longer ears than wolves and a bigger skull, or braincase. Male coyotes usually weigh more than females of the species, but in general coyotes weigh between 20 and 50 pounds (9-23 kg). The color and texture of a coyote's fur is different depending on where a coyote lives. Coyotes living in desert regions often have light gray and red or brownish yellow fur, mixed with some black and gray shades. However, coyotes will likely have more black and gray fur if they live in high-elevation areas. The texture, or feel, of a coyote's fur is long and coarse in its outer layer and short and soft in its undercoat. Their tales are full and thick. Some species of coyote living in northern regions often have longer and thicker fur than those species living in southern areas of North America.
