Lynx rufus Even though this is not how I would have liked to capture a "wild bobcat" It does represent a beautiful animal in the wild. We live on the outskirts of any real population and this guy comes through our development regularly. He is still as wild as they get and reflects a good diet and healthy environment that he has adopted to very well. There are plenty of birds and wild rabbits here which I don't think he has any trouble putting them on his plate. Bobcat,Geotagged,Lynx rufus,Spring,United States Click/tap to enlarge

  1. What a joy it must be to have this around. To me it appears like the exact mid point between a domestic and big cat. Posted 3 years ago
  2. Ha! get it in a corner and try to pet him, you will quickly learn how domesticated this feline isn't :)

    What a joy to be able to observe this creature from your own garden!

The bobcat is a North American mammal of the cat family Felidae, appearing during the Irvingtonian stage of around 1.8 million years ago . With 12 recognized subspecies, it ranges from southern Canada to northern Mexico, including most of the continental United States. The bobcat is an adaptable predator that inhabits wooded areas, as well as semidesert, urban edge, forest edges, and swampland environments. It remains in some of its original range, but local populations are vulnerable to extirpation.. more
