Fox and coyote breeding season

Fox and coyote breeding season comes in late January and early February. Competing male foxes go nose to nose in screaming matches until one backs down. Mates remain together to raise their young born in March or April. The family stays together until the fall. Foxes typically live up to 12 years in the wild, or 19 years in captivity. Coyotes mate for live, but those lives may be short, with few living more than four years in the wild.
