Re: coyote/fox

<---- Coyote, have bigger more developed brains. They're not a wolf but they're more than a fox, Coyote DNA is linked with wolves and dogs which is why they can interbreed. Northeast variety reportedly has wolf dna and it is my experience they are a step up in difficulty from the western version. Fox have smaller and more repeatable travel patterns.

Wish I could have got it on camera but 2 years ago trapping in Idaho I watched a pair of coyotes intimately hunting rabbits with a badger. The coyote would post themselves waiting for something to exit while the badger would start entering holes in an area. In some cases the coyote would stand on the entrance mound and the badger would go under the yote belly into the hole. Badger liked to weave between the legs of the yote when they moved. It was once in a lifetime amazing! tried to figure out the balance as to how the coyote were a benefit to the badger, maybe they shared the kill. But coyote are smart!

Re: coyote/fox

Hummm, looks like you have done some research on yotes and fox, but can you determine which of the following are smarter: dc21, bates or atr? Please include all scientific facts to back up conclusions.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

In this matter research suggests that a lack of scientific data corresponds directly to an exponentially increasing lack of smartivity. So in other words of non-scientific research terms, dumb, dumber, and dumbest.

Re: coyote/fox

Every year it seems to be harder and harder to catch fox and at the same time I catch more yotes,,,,, the fox are obviously smarter.
