Despite my husband's objections, I am often found with the possession of skulls and other bones. It's all pretty self-explanatory, really.
Canis Latrans, if you want to get uppity about it, is one of my North American favorites. Adaptable. Problem solving. Top-down management style of the rodent population. What's not to like here? Coyotes will even hybridize with domestic dogs and occasionally with wolves. Although, if we're honest, when a wolf and a coyote meet, it usually doesn't end well for the coyote.
In evolutionary terms, the coyote is a survivor. His ancestors were bigger than we see him today. If you like the company of your barn cats, that's probably not such a bad thing.
Nobody thinks this is funny but me. I don't get paid to do stuff like this, but I totally should.
PS: Don't go randomly picking up road kill, people. For many reasons. It stinks, is probably shattered beyond repair, and could make you really, really sick. You don't need that in your life, right? Right. Besides, you can use any of these images anytime you want. If you need a large resolution file for printing, all you gotta do is ask. I'll hook you up.
Be safe out there. Cheers!
