The coyote (Canis latrans) is a species of canine native to North America.

The coyote means "barking dog", and a member of the Canidae family, and a relative of the domestic dog and wolf. Coyotes are only found in North America. Coyotes may occasionally assemble in small packs, but normally hunt alone.

Coyotes live an average of about 6 years in the wild. The word "coyote" derives from the Náhuatl (from the Aztec word cóyotl).
