Coyote Chew & Scat Signature Display (Animal Signatures® Display Series)
Just as we learn to identify the handwriting of others, we can learn to read “signatures” left behind by wildlife. By recognizing these animal clues, it is possible to conclude which animals are in the area. This unique, glass-topped display provides real examples of these clues, or signatures. Each sample is collected from the wild with careful regard to environmental impact, and assembled by Acorn Naturalists. With this display, discover how coyotes will consume fruits, leaving strips of fruit (such as this red cactus fruit) and seeds on the ground along with telltale opuntia seed-bearing scat. The scat included is a ScatCast® replica. Information about the samples shown is provided on the back, making this display perfect for educators. Our signature displays are recommended for ages 8 to adult.
Dimensions: 6" L x 8" W x ¾" D
Quoted from the label on the back of the display:
"Although classified as carnivores, coyotes are opportunistic omnivores; when delicacies such as cactus (Opuntia) fruit are in season, coyotes often feast on them. The fruits in this display have been arranged to demonstrate the signature a coyote leaves behind after enjoying its meal—small clumps of fruit skin and seeds left after it slurps up most of the fruit. Coyote scat, too, offers clues into its feasting forays. Look carefully and you will see bumps in this scat replica from seeds that passed through its digestive system."
