Based on the most recent models, Coyotes (Canis latrans) are believed to reside throughout North and Central America in many regions marked by human disturbances. Although some field guides list C. latrans as residing in Belize, the IUCN and the most current models do not. Herein we provide the second published sighting of a C. latrans from camera traps in Belize, and the first from the Mayan Mountain Region of the country.
