5 Coyote   Some fun facts about coyotes from Wild & Furry Animals of the Southern Appalachian Mountains, my award-winning book that appeals to adults and children alike. Coyotes are one of the most adaptable and cunning canines on the planet and can be found in a wide variety of habitats, from deserts to alpine meadows, and even in large cities like New York and Los Angeles. They are social animals and prefer to live and hunt in packs. Coyote howls, referred to by scientists as group yip-howls, are short howls that rise and fall in pitch, punctuated with staccato yips, yaps, and barks. These
group yip-howls are often mistaken for a large pack of animals all raising their voices at once. Because of the variety of sounds produced by each coyote, and the waysound is distorted as it passes through the environment,two coyotes can sound like six to eight animals.
