American Bobcat

(Lynx rufus)

A medium-sized North American cat that inhabits wooded areas, as well as semidesert, urban edge, forest edge, and swampland environments. Being territorial and largely solitary like most of the feline species however on occasion there will be some overlap in territory range. The Bobcat has a diverse diet of chickens and other birds, insects, and even deer. Their prey of choice are rabbits and hares preferably. Abundance, habitat and location largely determines the selection of their diet.
