An adaptable North American cat found in a variety of habitats and
able to tolerate living near to humans. It is closely related to
the Lynx, but only half the size and is considered more aggressive and harder to tame. It has been hybridised with
domestic cats. Its black ear tufts and its ruff are less prominent than those of the Lynx and its
short tail lacks a black tip. The colour ranges from light grey to reddish brown, though melanistic, albino (blue-eyed
white) and leucistic (dark-eyedwhite) Bobcats have been found.
It has black spots on the legs and black markings on the face (black-nosed Bobcats have been
reported). Bobcats are
