Instagram photo by wildcanids - The name "Coywolf" is an informal term for a canid hybrid descended from coyotes and and one of three other North American Canis species (gray, eastern, and red wolves). The coyote is closely related to both eastern and red wolves, having diverged from them 150,000-300,000 years ago and evolved side by side with them in North America, thus facilitating hybridization between them. In contrast, hybrids between coyotes and gray wolves, which are Eurasian in origin and diverged from coyotes 1-2 million years ago, are extremely rare, due to the latter species' habit of killing coyotes. Such hybridization in the wild has only been confirmed in isolated gray wolf populations in the southern USA, while several specimens were produced in captivity via artificial insemination from sperms extracted from northwestern gray wolves used on female western coyotes. Coydogs, who are hybrids between coyotes and domestic dogs, can also be considered as a close relative to hybrids of coyotes and gray wolves due in part to the dogs being considered a domesticated subspecies of the gray wolf.
