Bobcats are only found in North America and gets its name because of it’s stubby or “Bobbed” tail
Bobcats are tawny (greyer in winter) with distinct dark spotting. They are short with a stubby tail and ears slightly tufted. They are born blind and weight up to 8 ounces. The kittens are born well furred and have spots that can vary in shape and design. Their habitat is primarily scrubby country or broken forests – hardwood, coniferous, or mixed; also swamps, farmland, and rocky or bushy arid lands. They are excellent swimmers but can also walk as much as 25 miles in a day. They are more active after dusk and before dawn. Bobcats are carnivores and prefer an all meat diet. On average they tend to live for 12-13 years.
