Reclusive and nocturnal, Bobcats are medium-sized felines sometimes called Wildcats. The name bobcat derives from the animal's relatively short tail that appears cut or "bobbed." While they naturally occur in nearly every climate across the continental United States, bobcats have also begun to appear in suburban settings. They are carnivorous and hunt and eat rodents, rabbits, birds, small deer, and reptiles.


Bobcats can be found in various regions of the United States. They are highly adaptable animals and live in forested areas in the north, deserts in the west, and marshlands in the south. Typically solitary animals, bobcats sleep in hidden dens such as hollowed or fallen trees, brush, and thickets, or in rocky fissures. As they are generally nocturnal animals, bobcat sightings are quite uncommon.
