Coyotes can weigh 20 to 50 pounds. These animals are a part of the dog family, and they easily adapt to different living environments. Coyotes live in almost all parts of North America, surviving in cities, forests and mountain areas.
A coyote's weight depends upon its ability to catch prey. Coyotes are omnivorous and will hunt and eat deer, rabbits, small rodents, snakes, birds and even household pets like dogs and cats. If there are no meat sources available, coyotes will eat grass and fruit.
A coyote can live up to 14 years of age, and during that time, it will create strong family bonds with a pack. Both males and females hunt to feed their young.
