Thanks to Sterling for trapping this amazing yote. I just love the darker color with the silver streaking. I modified the form slightly to close the mouth a bit, the original form was open wide to snatch prey, also had to significantly lengthen the legs. The guard hairs on the tail are so long they don't stand up properly on their own, the fur over his shoulders is close to four inches long. Under all the black is red. Would this be considered a melanistic coyote or just an unusually handsome normal? Took him out into the yard for a photo shoot.
