Slithering Down A Slope On A Stomach

Here is a young fellow slithering down a hillside on its stomach. First, there was a very blasé yawn, indicating that maybe the coyote was feeling a bit bored: it had been sitting on a hilltop watching for some activity which never materialized. Then there was a long stretch. The front legs remained extended far out in front of the coyote:  alternatively pulling the coyote’s entire body forwards. The back legs were just dragged along. Might this have been a form of entertainment? Or maybe it was giving itself a belly scratch? When it was through, it got up and walked off slowly.
