How to Play as Coyote in GTA V:

In the Next Gen edition of GTA V, players are able to play as a Coyote by finding one of the Peyote Plants in the game world. After consuming one, the protagonist will temporarily transform into a random animal.

Also, photographing this animal is required for the "Wildlife Photography Challenge" side mission.
