Coyotes are generally larger that foxes. They approximately 2 feet tall at the shoulders and 3-4 feet long. Foxes are generally 13-15 inches at the shoulder but can be similar to coyotes in length.

A coyote looks like and moves like a dog, foxes are smaller, longer, and move in a more catlike manner.

A coyote runs with its tail down and a fox runs with its tail out behind it. Coyotes are usually larger than foxes and generally travel in packs where foxes travel by themselves.

Answer by  Tabatha (440)

The coyote is taller and bigger than a fox. Coyotes resemble canines and they are about as big as a medium-sized dog. Coyotes have longer and skinnier legs and their fur is usually darker and longer than the fur of a fox. The face of a coyote is longer. The fox looks to be a more 'pleasant' animal.
