Ok so my photography skills arn't the best, but I've been wanting to show my three black boys together for a while now. Hopefully I'll get better pics later.
The smaller two are coyotes, the middle is a wolf for those not sure. They're all melanistic - a genetic mutation that causes pigments to turn dark. Melanistic canids usually have white markings on chest and belly, coyotes tend to have more white markings than wolves.
These are my babies.
Nothing beats coming in from the snow and having a big fur pile to flop on.
