This medium-sized canid is about 30–34 in (76–86 cm) in length, not including the tail and they weigh from 6.8–21 kg (15–46 lbs.). The fur is brown or grayish and grizzled on the back and sides. The underside is whitish or very light tan. The legs are tinged with russet.
Coyotes are extremely adaptable animals. As a result, they can be found in prairies, forests, and even suurban areas where they find habitat in parks.
I found this coyote hunting voles in a mountain meadow in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, USA.
