dc.description.abstract We studied the food habits of the coyote (Cams latrans) through stomach contents analysis, in the Vizcaino Desert, Baja California Sur, Mexico, from January to March 1984. Thirty stomachs were analyzed, and their contents identified. Rodents and plants are the most frequent foods consumed. Taking into account the mass of food items ingested, rodents (JDipodomys and Thomomys} were the main prey items consumed. There was no evidence of domestic livestock ingestion. en_US
