Signs of life in the desert!

On a recent hike into the desert close to my house I came upon some interesting holes on the desert floor. I photographed three of the holes that were in close proximity to one another. Check out the three photo's below and see if you can figure out who made them.

Answer: These holes were dug by Coyotes and Foxes looking for rodents and lizards in holes in the ground. With their great smelling sense they can locate the object under the ground and then dig for it with their front paws.
