Description

A coyote's keen senses help it survive. With eyes that can spot the smallest movement, ears that can hear the faintest rustle, and legs designed for racing, it's no wonder some coyotes live to be more than 10 years old. These adaptable canines communicate by howling, and those who live in cities even respond to the sirens of fire trucks. This book explores the lives of clever coyotes at work and at play. About the series: Each book in the Welcome to the World of Series introduces children to wildlife through color photographs, lively description and amazing facts.
