Second Generation Anatomy:
 No ears on the sides of their head, rather on the top and in the form of a coyote's but proportionate to the size of their skulls.
 These ears are made of cartilage with muscles and tendon growing over it that gives them movement.
 Because they can move, their ears are used in much the same way a dog or wolf's is, by the position in which they are held in. Movement and position of the ears are used to communicate mood and rank.
 The ears are covered in short fur, but may have a tuft at the top (such as lynxes have).
 The fur is usually the color of their hair, but may be a shade lighter or darker and it almost always is the same color as their tails.
 Their hearing is much better than a humans; it ranges for miles and they can hear through cement.

 The iris of their eyes is large and shows no white.
 The pupils are normally large and round but can be narrowed into slits when its extremely bright or when they are angry and distrustful.
 Eye colors can be any color natural to humans and coyotes; the most common eye color is brown, in various shades.
 They can see perfectly in both the light and dark, and have a dull eye shine.
 Unlike most Coyotes, these ones can see both near and far due to the human in their DNA.

 On the outside their noses look human but on the inside they have 220 million scent receptors (humans have 5 million) and therefore can smell much better
 It ranges for miles and they can smell through cement.

 Their mouths are humanoid in appearance (meaning they don't have an elongated muzzle).
 Their top and bottom Canines are larger than normal human's, more like a coyotes. The Canines fit nicely within their mouths and don't protrude or make strange indents.
 The rest of their teeth are similar to humans, but much sharper.
 They have 24 sharp teeth in all (not including wisdom teeth).
 Like an animals, their tongues are slightly longer than a human's; but it isn't too noticeable.

 The shades of their skin varies and is determined by the skin colors of their parents. Normally their skin tones tend to lean towards a shade of tawny, with lighter or darker shades.  
 They can't get human blemishes such as the skin conditions that teenagers get during puberty. They can, however, have moles, freckles, or birth marks.

 For the most part the amount of body hair is based on genetics, however it tends to grow at an unusually slow rate.
 Pubic hair grows in when they hit puberty.
 The hair on their heads can be styled in any way they choose and is normal like human hair, of varying length and color.
 There is no specific hair color they receive, it depends solely on their human genetics.
 In spite of this, most Coyotes have hair some shade of brown. Also common is black. The rarest hair color is blond.

 The torso is the same as a human's with all of their organs in the same spots.
 Females do have only one set of breasts with nipples.
 They do not have belly buttons.
 Since their spines are straight (with the exception of the tail) they walk upright with no hunch.

Arms & Hands
 The bones in their arms are elongated, making it easier for them to run on either two or four "legs".
 Their arms are very well-muscled to allow them to run on four "legs" without straining the back and neck.
 Their hands are about the same size a human's is, perhaps a little wider.
 Their fingers are two jointed rather than three like a human's; it makes it easier to run on all fours.  
 Although they don't have pads on their hands, the skin is rougher there.
 They have hard claws where fingernails would be on humans. These claws generally come in white or skin colored, but can occasionally be black, gray, or brown.

Legs & Feet
 The legs of the Coyotes are similar to those of a human's in shape and width, but they are longer due to the metatarsals never touching the ground.
 Most of the time their knees are bent to keep balance, but can be straightened like a human's.
 Where the metatarsals begins is where the Coyote part of their DNA shows.
 Unlike their hands, their feet are wide but not long, and have one toe joint rather than two.
 They are digitigrades, meaning they walk on their toes.
 The bottoms of their feet have very thin but tough pads for protection against anything they may step on. The pads are generally a shade darker than their skin color, or the same color as their claws.
 On their toes instead of nails there are large hard claws to grip the ground well. These claws can also be used as weapons.
 The coyote has 4 digits on the hind feet including the dewclaw.

 The tails are an extension of their spine that they have full control over and are located at the top of the pelvis bone (obviously in the back).
 Their tails are normally compact like a Coyote's as opposed to bushy like a fox's.
 Tails can come in any color, but are usually the same color as either the ears or the hair.
 They can vary in length but are normally long.
 Tails are held in many positions but the most common is letting it hang a few feet off the ground.
 When angry their tails do bristle. Like the tails of dogs and wolves, they communicate their feelings depending on how they hold their tails.

 Their organs are essentially the same as humans with minor adaptations.
 Lungs are bigger for more oxygen intake while being active.
 The part of the brain that is the "lizard brain" is slightly larger than that of a normal human.
 Unlike humans they can digest raw meat with no negative side effects.
 Their metabolisms are faster.  
 They  have a Jacobson's organ that gives scent information to the brain.

 Females can have a maximum of two pups at one time (making them twins) and have no season to come into heat (meaning they can create new life whichever season it is).
 Both males and females have human-based genitals.
 Normal Coyotes have a gestation of 63 days and have 1-19 pups. However, the female hybrids have a gestation period of 5 months.
      Maturing female and male pups may be able to mate after one year but when resource availability is low they generally don't reproduce until two years of age. For the Pack maturity is reached at 13 years but they usually don't begin to mate until 14 years.
I was bored since my other computer has no Internet and decided to try and figure out the workings of my Coyotes from my story Follow Me Or Die. Its something I've been trying to do for years but I quite frankly sucked at searching for reference and information. I believe I have gotten better.

Some of this may not be in the right category. I hope it is, but there are several things that can be placed in more than one. My organizing system works for me, maybe it will work for you as well.

On a side note, these Coyote-human creatures are about half and half when it comes to their DNA. Hench the lack of fur covering their bodies completely. As it says in the title of the Deviation itself, this is only the distinction of the 2nd generation of Coyote-humans. The 3rd has more Coyote in it than human and therefore some things are different.

This took all day to do. I worked very hard on finding a lot of information from different places to make this as accurate as possible. Most of this information is based off of Werewolves, but I did look up Coyotes; they are similar in body-types so I settled for the werewolf since finding coyote anthros is nearly impossible.

Thank you for putting the information online: ~Draikairion and =sugarpoultry

No, really, this is well thought through

Thank you very much. I tried.
