Bobcats of Big Cat Rescue

We will start our tour in Florida and work our way around the globe. The bobcat, named for her bobbed tail, lives in a variety of habitats including swamps, forests, deserts and mountains. Bobcats are great climbers and spend their days sleeping in the trees waiting for the cover of darkness to hunt. The bobcat is ferocius for her size, which is often not much bigger than a domestic cat, and is capable of hunting deer and wild boar, but her favourite foods are rabbits and rodents. In the southern states the bobcat has a short, dark coat and in northern climates she will have a lighter coloured, longer fur.
