Coyote Head Study – 7-1/8 x 10-3/4; Offset Paper; Edition Size 2500; $80.00 U.S.
“The much maligned coyote is the definitive survivor. Found in a variety of habitats,
its diet consists of rabbits. rodents, carrion and occasionally, larger mammals,
especially deer. Coyotes are one of the fastest terrestrial animals in North
America, capable of reaching speeds of 38 miles per hour. The coyote will
sometimes form a mutually beneficial partnership with a badger, in which
the two will actually hunt together. The coyote uses its keen sense of smell to
locate burrowing rodents so that the badger can dig them up with its powerful
claws. Both then share the prize.
It is no wonder that an animal so resourceful as the coyote not only has
managed to survive, but that it has extended its territory. This is due in part
to human intervention which included the clearing of forests and almost
total elimination of the coyote’s competition, the wolf.”
