Even the toughest of animals love to play.
Coyotes are known as cunning carnivores, wild by nature.
But photographer Pamela Underhill-Karaz captured a different side to these beasts that's just too cute.
The beautiful creature, now known as the "Toy Thief" came onto the photographer's property after spotting a bright dog toy.
"I spotted the coyote while having our morning coffee," she told Mother Nature Network.
"He made his way over to [the toy], sniffed around it where our dog had rolled, sniffed the toy, picked it up, dropped it, sniffed it again."
Underhill-Karaz continues: "[He] picked it up then proceeded to toss it up in the air and play with it, just like a dog would toss a toy around."
Luckily, the photographer was around with her camera in hand.
She managed to capture this wonderfully playful side to an animal we usually associate with being wild and dangerous.
It was an unforgettable encounter for Karaz, and the coyote left with a new toy.
