Taxidermy Coyote Rug - Canis latrans
The coyote is widespread across Central and North America. Despite constant human encroachment, coyotes have flourished as a species and even reproduce in metropolitan areas. In fact, the human reworking of the North American landscape, eliminating most wolf populations, has probably allowed the humble coyote to expand its range enormously. The coyote is an opportunistic, versatile carnivore, and feeds mostly on small animals like voles, squirrels, birds, and mice. It will also eat carrion or attack large animals such as deer or livestock, and pet owners in many parts of the country know that cats and small dogs are quite vulnerable. Socially, too, it is adaptable, hunting in packs in habitats frequented by larger prey, but singly or in pairs in pursuit of smaller game. Males and females are both considered sexually mature at one year old, but most do not breed until their second year. Females have one period of estrus yearly, and the average litter size is 6 pups. Like wolves, foxes and feral dogs (with all of whom it is known to interbreed), it is considered a pest by farmers who raise sheep or chickens, and has been hunted and trapped for its fur since long before Europeans ventured into the Americas.
This is a handsome rug, finished with a brand new felt lining. It is in exceptionally good condition, with all its teeth and claws intact. It would make a beautiful accent rug in any room. Individual specimens vary but your item will resemble the pictured example.
