I believe that adding coyotes to Minecraft has the potential to add more character to different biomes.
Everything in this post is based on real life.
Coyotes would look like wolves, but they’d be close to the size of foxes.
If they live in deserts they’d often have grayish/fulvous fur, if they live in higher elevation they’d have black/gray shades of fur.
They’d spawn in forests, deserts, and plains.
Coyotes are mostly nocturnal.
They live in family groups, but they usually travel and hunt alone or in loose pairs.
They’d likely stick around a village if they stumbled upon it, killing their cats and raiding their farms at night.
They’d retreat if a villager approached them, but they might attack the villager if they got too close.
They’d wouldn’t be hostile towards adult foxes, but they may kill their kits.
They’d follow wolves to feed on the scraps of their kills.
We should either be able to tame them as pups, or breed them with our dog and get a tame coydog.
Llamas and donkeys will kill coyotes.
Coyotes eat birds, sheep, turtles, goats, rabbits, fish, insects, apples, watermelon, grass, berries, carrots, and wheat.
We could get coyote pelts when they are killed.
