Description
Fresh scat and urine excrement from a coyote - deposited two minutes prior. Coyote latrans is both carnivore and herbivore - or more appropriately an omnivore. This fresh scat is just loosely firm, consisting largely of the seeds from local berries, with liquid runoff both from the scat consistency as well as from urine. Coyotes are territorial, and mark boundaries with urine. In additiont to berries and other fruits they consume rodents, reptiles, mammals and birds. Small animal prey indigenous to the Arizona desert includes ground-oriented birds like quail and roadrunners, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, mice and voles. When hunted by coyote packs, larger prey can include young, sick or injured javelina and deer. Coyote scat color and consistency changes with diet, and will often contain undigested hair fibers in tubular feces. North Wilson Mountain, Coconino National Forest, Coconino County, Arizona, 2013.
