Smaller but very similar to their relative the gray wolf, coyotes are a type of canine that are endemic to North and Central America. What coyotes lack in size and strength they make up for in adaptability, as they can survive in almost all types of environments!

  • Scientific Name: Canis latrans
  • Characteristics: Hand painted with an incredible attention to detail, this life-like figurine captures the coyote’s personality perfectly. Its posture reflects its timid nature, as coyotes rarely approach creatures larger than themselves.
  • Size and Color: This figurine stands 3.75 inches long and 2.5 inches tall, making it a bit large than a deck of cards stood on its side. Depicted with its marigold and sandy black pelt, it’s fairly uncommon to see these beautiful creatures in the wild due to how shy and elusive they are.

  • The Coyote is part of the Wild Safari® North American Wildlife collection.
  • All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free.

    History:

    A prominent figure in American and Native American folklore, coyotes are often depicted as clever tricksters, similar to foxes, despite the many differences between the two. However, as coyotes have begun to densely inhabit and dwell in urban and suburban areas, the attitude towards them has becoming increasingly negative. In these areas, coyotes are often seen as pests. Because of their close proximity to human inhabited areas as well as their large populations, they’ve become infamous for preying upon livestock.
