Coyote Behavior

Coyotes can be found in fields, plains and bushy areas. Coyotes are basically solitary animals. They mark their territories with urine. The coyote is also a very vocal animal. It barks, growls, yips, whines and howls.

The coyote's tail becomes bushy and is held horizontally when it displays aggression. Its sense of smell is highly developed.

Coyotes are omnivores. They eat mammals, birds and snakes, but will also eat plants. Typically, they are nocturnal and hunt at night. When hunting larger prey, coyotes hunt in packs.
