No, I am not talking about someone missing their dog Spot or Buster in the title where I have Missing Canine! But I’ll get to that.
I saw two Coyotes right after arriving on Antelope Island yesterday that were bathed in the soft light of dawn, I can’t resist taking images of the beautiful “Song Dogs” that I see and I couldn’t resist this pair.
One of the Coyotes wasn’t very cooperative after the image above was taken and kept its back to me and it sure looks like the other one is giving me a raspberry.
Or maybe it was just still sleepy.
This is about as big as I have ever seen a Coyote yawn! But there is something missing in this picture. I don’t know what caused it but this Coyote is missing its left lower canine tooth.
This is a large crop that shows a gap where the canine tooth used to be. I am not worried about this Coyote though because it will do just fine without that one missing tooth.
The coyotes seemed to be searching the grasses and sagebrush for ground nesting bird eggs or perhaps the chicks but while I observed them they didn’t take any prey.
Life is good.
