Who's Who? The Coyote Vs the Wolf


 
Travel & Tourism,Environment
There’s often confusion between the coyote and the wolf. Both are members of the canine family and, although they do display many similarities, their differences are just as marked.

Wolf watching tours enable participants to encounter these shy and elusive animals both alone and in packs, and in a range of habitats around the world. In order to make your wolf watching experience as memorable as possible, it can help to be informed about the species’ behaviour and physiology. Understanding the differences between Canis lupus and its cousin Canis latrans (the coyote) is a good start.

Knowing the Differences

The two animals share a family (Canidae), genus (Canis) and order (Carnivora), but Canis lupus has a far more aggressive nature than its smaller and lighter counterpart. Coyotes are about as large as a medium-sized domestic dog, while wolves can measure up to 1.6 metres from nose to tail tip and weigh up to 90 kilograms. The latter voraciously and fearlessly hunts their prey, taking on animals as large as bison and winning. Coyotes are omnivores, supplementing their diet of rodents, reptiles and other small animals with vegetation – in short, they are less predatory.

Both are pack animals, often hunting and raising young collaboratively. However coyote packs are generally smaller, usually containing between three and twelve animals, as opposed to wolf packs, which can number up to 40. The two species’ intelligence, stamina and hunting techniques are fairly equal, but it is the sheer physical power and aggression of Canis lupus that sets it apart as such a fearsome animal.

Appearance

Distinguishing the adults of each species is not difficult for those who understand how to identify their physical differences (however, it can be almost impossible to tell pups apart). While both can have similarly coloured coats (ranging from light grey to brown or black), their facial characteristics are markedly different. Whereas wolves have proportionately small ears, broad snouts and large nose pads, coyotes have narrower nose pads and snouts, and larger ears in comparison to their heads.

Vocal Differences

The two animals’ respective vocalizations are also quite distinct. The coyote has a higher-pitched voice and its howls tend to be shorter, while wolves have a lower tone and a more continuous, drawn-out howl.

Tracks and Scat

When on a wolf watching tour, guides may point out the tracks and scat (faeces) of the animal. Simply due to their physical body size, their scat is considerably larger than that of a coyote. Their tracks, too, are very different. Apart from being bigger, wolf tracks have clearly defined edges and show both the marks left by the inner and splayed outer toes as well as the claws (this is not usually the case with coyote tracks).

The chance to visit a diverse variety of landscapes around the world on a wolf watching holiday can be a dream come true for those with an interest in these iconic wild creatures. Seeing one traverse a vast open plain on a solo mission or observing a pack hunt is an unforgettable experience.
