The coyote is a smaller cousin of the gray wolf and is native to North America. The coyote is a prominent character in Native American folklore, usually depicted as a trickster who alternates between assuming the form of man and coyote. It is seen as a rough and dishonest but appealing hero. As the trickster, it rebels against social convention through deception and humor.
Coyotes look like gray or reddish-gray, medium-sized dogs with pointed noses and bushy tails. They have a keen sense of smell and their hearing is very sharp. Coyotes make many different sounds to express themselves. Besides the long howl, they also have sounds which include barks, “bark-howls” and “yip-howls.”Coyotes walk with only their toes touching the ground.
These taxidermy paws are made from the remnants of taxidermy pieces. They are real specimens, so variations in size and color, as well as natural wear, are to be expected.
