Dear Aquila Friends,
I am going to take a break from blogging inquiries and answers tonight, as I spent a bit of time making a video for you to see on Thursday at the assembly and I am exhausted!

Today was a long, rainy day and it was very cold. I hope tomorrow doesn't rain as much. We only caught two voles, hopefully tomorrow will be better for catching!

Please try to get your answers together for the wolf/coyote/eastern coyote inquiries and post them on the blog tomorrow (Wednesday), I will then post the information I have received from our research and the scientists.

Hi Miss Beeman! We did a lot of research about the coyote, wolf, and Eastern coyote. We found out a lot of great information. Here are some comments we had about what we found out.
* We discovered that coyotes and wolves live in dens, but only coyotes can build their own dens if they need to. That is a great adaptation to survive.

* W also found out that coyotes taht live on the flat land (plains?) usually take 30-40 minutes to stalk its prey before it pounces. That got us thinking: Do the coyotes living in the forests stalk and hunt more quickly because there are more places to hide?

* We had a hard time finding out the differences between the EAstern coyote and coyote, other than the fact that the EAstern coyote looks a lot larger- more like a wolf. Are Eastern Coyotes half wolf?

We are going to come up with some more thoughts and have them ready for our conversation with you tomorrow.
