Mystery

My very smart, environmentally conscious, and animal-guru friend, MCF, thinks the baby wolf I saw in Yellowstone might instead be a fox or a coyote. I really want to get to the bottom of this. Here are the pictures I took. I need your opinions. (Remember that I'm photo-challenged)














Yes, he's doing exactly what he looks like he's doing. lol.

What say you?! Is he a wolf, coyote, or fox? Either leave a comment or answer poll to the side. Thanks!!

I'm so glad that you are photo challenged too!!! I am way worse, though, but it makes me feel a little better!! I'm also animal challenged and have no ideas for you - sorry!!

None of the above I say he's an elephant! With mom's camera skills, it could be anything! Ha ha :)

Absotively, posulutely, unequivocably this is a coyote. I see them on a daily basis where I live, which reminds me of a great story with coyotes AND missionaries. Watch for the post soon!

From my vast on line research, I would say ... he/she is a Coyote. I will vote on your poll. Thanks for the question. I love learning. m

ps I just changed my id photo. What do you think?

I was wondering about that when I saw it. Its a coyote. Wolves are massive in the real. They are so so big. He is just to little.

Love that you put it out there for us.. Bye Red.

Okay - looks like he was a coyote. Now I ask you - how can something soooo cute be mean?!

Frump - I love animals - but I am animal challenged too. I'll post about it someday.

Kitchen Ditcher - I'm jealous that you see these cute animals on a daily basis!

Mechelle - love the pic! Thanks for your online research.

Jan - Now I really really really want to see a wolf in the real!

So don't know. But hey why not say fox! Sounds fun!

Jan said...

I am so excited about your kit being done. That is so great Red. Sometimes it seems so daunting to do, but I am so glad that you just did it. Yeah..

Tell Todd that he goes bro-less. Not bra-less. Just have to make that clear.

My vote is a coyote, but I'm definitely no expert!

Hi Jodi, it's Melissa from the ward. Great to be found! I love that you commented; thanks for doing so. That is such an amazing photo of "Me and my Missionary". Love it!

Thanks for viewing my blog. We'll be blog buddies now! :)

Definitely a coyote!! LOVE the last picture. That is a pure Christmas card moment if you ask me. Just photoshop a knit cap and scarf. Nature at its best!!!!

Ummm...I'm gonna say FOX. :)

it's too small to be a Wolf.

I think Coyotes usually have more Scraggly looking tails--unless that is a picture of a healthy one.

Who knows....it might be something different like a mixture of a wolf, fox, and coyote....you know animals can Mix Things Up Sometimes! ♥
