Wolf and Coyote-Description Of
Wolf and Coyote-Description Of-I would like to know the difference between the gray wolf and the coyote, also the difference in the wildcat and the lynx of the Rocky Mountains.
The following descriptions of the wolf and the coyote are from “American Animals”; Gray Wolf, length 4 feet 9 inches; prevailing color gray; dark, almost black along the back, with a dusky patch on the shoulders and hips. Some times more rufous. Coyote, length 4 feet; general color fulvous; grizzled with black and white hairs; under parts whitish; tail tipped with black. This, of course, refers to the average animals. The wolf is considerably heavier than the coyote and is much more stoutly built. The muzzle is heavier, the ears comparatively smaller and the tail is carried in a horizontal position, while the coyote’s tail droops. The lynx is larger than the wildcat or bobcat. The tail of the wildcat is somewhat longer than that of the lynx; the fur is shorter and coarser; hair on sides of face shorter, feet much smaller; color more reddish; markings more distinct, small black spots frequently appearing on the sides, while with the real lynx these are never present.
