What Do Coyotes Eat?
Coyotes typically hunt in pairs, although they have
been observed in packs. Coyote packs are usually smaller
than wolf packs and the pack hierarchy is less stable.
In areas where wolves have been exterminated, coyotes
usually fill the void.
Coyotes are opportunistic and versatile carnivores,
with a 90% mammalian diet. The coyote uses itís swiftness
and agility to catch itís prey: a coyote may reach speeds
up to 43 miles per hour, and can jump over 13 feet.
Primarily, they eat small mammals like rabbits, squirrels,
mice, and birds, as well as snakes, and lizards. They
also eat large insects and other large invertebrates.
