Bobcat (Felis rufus)
Looks like a tabby cat with a broad cheek ruff, but large 25-30", adult males may be larger. Tawny coloring with black spots. Short stubby tail with black marking on top and tip and light colored below. Short ear tufts. Similar to a lynx, but the lynx has a black tail all around, longer ear tufts and lives much further north than the bobcat. The bobcat is the most common wildcat in North America. It hides during the day and preys on rabbits, mice and squirrels.
