*Coyotes are usually very good swimmers.
*Coyotes eat both meat and vegetation. They eat mostly smallish things like rats, mice, gophers, rabbits, fish, frogs, insects, snakes, birds, fruit, and grass.
*Coyotes aren't really as large as you might think; they just have a very thick coat of fur that makes them appear more weighty and sizey! The adult coyotes that are here in southern California typically range between 20-35 lbs.
*Coyotes are usually wonderful parents. Unlike many species, both the mother and father take an active, paws-on role in caring for their pups.
