Follow my blog as I explore the mammals of Nova Scotia!

Boys and Girls,
After further research and discussion with Dr. Newman, I have to make a correction or clarification about the wolf/coyote blog... There are actually no wolves or coyotes specifically in Nova Scotia (there are some in Canada) the only one found in Nova Scotia is the eastern coyote.

I would still let you to look at the wolf, coyote, and eastern coyote and discuss their adaptations, similarities and differences. After you have determined the general adaptations, the important questions are:

*Coyotes traditionally lived in flat areas before coming to Nova Scotia (Canada), but now live in the woods of Nova Scotia, how would they have to adapt in order to survive in their new habitat? (Your thoughts as well as research are welcome here.)

*What is the Eastern Coyote and how/why was the species "created"?

Miss Beeman,

We are having a hard time finding out why the eastern coyote was created. We will be really excited to hear what you have to say about this subject. We did learn that the eastern coyote is bigger and we talked a lot about adaptations that wolves and coyotes have.
