Canis latrans (coyote) is a canine species endemic to North America. It is slightly smaller than its near relative, the wolf, and the closely related eastern and red wolves. It has a similar ecological niche in Eurasia as the golden jackal. A behavioral ecologist once referred to the coyote as the American jackal because it is bigger and more predatory. Prairie wolf and brush wolf are two more historical names for the species.

Because of its widespread distribution and abundance in North America, the International Union for Conservation of Nature has designated the coyote as a species of least concern. Coyote populations can also be found in large numbers in Mexico and Central America. The species is adaptable, allowing it to thrive in settings that have been altered by humans. It’s expanding its territory by going into cities in the eastern United States and Canada. For the first time in 2013, a coyote was spotted in eastern Panama (across the Panama Canal from its native region).

There are 19 recognized subspecies of coyotes. The typical man weighs 8 to 20 kilograms (18 to 44 pounds), whereas the average female weighs 7 to 18 kilograms (15 to 40 lb). The hue of their fur is primarily light gray and red or fulvous, with black and white intermingled. However, it varies according to region. Its social system is very adaptable since it may live in a family unit or in loosely linked groups of unrelated people. Its food consists mostly of deer, rabbits, hares, rodents, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and invertebrates. However, it may occasionally consume fruits and vegetables. A lone individual’s howl is its distinctive vocalization.


Coyotes face the greatest threat from humans, followed by cougars and gray wolves. Regardless, coyotes occasionally mate with gray, eastern, or red wolves, resulting in “coywolf” hybrids. The eastern coyote (a bigger subspecies, albeit still smaller than wolves) is the product of numerous historical and current matings with various kinds of wolves in the northeastern areas of North America. Most North American wolves have some coyote DNA, according to genetic research.

The coyote is a well-known figure in Native American folklore, particularly in Aridoamerica. He is generally represented as a trickster who takes on the appearance of a coyote or a man. The coyote, like other trickster characters, utilizes deceit and comedy to defy societal conventions. In Mesoamerican cosmology, the animal was revered as a sign of military power. It was seen as a timid and untrustworthy animal in Anglo-American society following the European colonization of the Americas. Unlike wolves, which have improved their public image, opinions regarding coyotes are still overwhelmingly unfavorable.

Male coyotes weigh 8 to 20 kg (18 to 44 lb), while females weigh 7 to 18 kg (15 to 40 lb). However, size varies by region. Northern subspecies, with an average weight of 18 kg (40 lb), tend to grow larger than southern subspecies, with an average weight of 11.5 kg (25 lb).
