Lynx rufus


Common Names: Bobcat
Category: Mammals
Sub-category: Cats

It is about twice as large as the domestic cat. It has distinctive black bars on its forelegs and a black-tipped, stubby tail, from which it derives its name.

The bobcat is an adaptable predator that inhabits wooded areas, as well as semi-desert, urban edge, forest edges and swampland environments.

Edible Notes: While the meat is technically edible, most people report it as unappetizing and it is generally socially unacceptable for consumption.
Warnings: While they generally avoid humans, they are large predators and capable of inflicting serious injury.
