The tail is bushy with a black tip. The coyote grows to two feet (60 cm) tall and weighs 20 to 40 pounds (9 to 18 kg). It is a very fast runner and has keen vision and an excellent sense of smell. Coyotes live in burrows or dens in the ground. Five to ten pups are born in the spring. A distinctive feature of the coyote is its mournful howl.
