    THAT is a highly successful mother. Great video.

    Aren’t they kits, though?

    From what I’m reading typical mortality is 70% in the first year so one can expect only 2 or 3 of those pups to reach adulthood. Litters can be up to 19 but 5-7 is typical. Lower numbers when times are tough, higher in good times. Life span in the wild is about 10 years though captive coyotes have lived up to 18 years. And yes the proper name for the young is pups. Kit is for the young of fox.
