Caption: Coyote. View of a coyote (Canis latrans) scavenging on the carcass of an elk (Celvas elaphus) in the snow. They are sometimes called "prairie wolves" as they have a similar appearance to that of the grey wolf. A fully grown coyote has a body length of 95-125 cm, a shoulder height of 45-53 cm, a tail about 40 cm long and a body weight of 15 to 20 kg. Coyotes prey on small rodents and rabbits as well as scavenging on dead and rotting meat. They range from Alaska to Central America. Photographed in the Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA.
