A bobcat, also known as wild cat, can be found almost throughout North America. This kind of feline is nocturnal, elusive to humans, and can easily adapt to diverse habitats.Bobcats grow twice the size of a household cat. These cats have long legs and large paws that enable them to easily hunt prey. Bobcats are good hunters of prey because of their stealth and ability to leap 10 feet from the ground. They usually have brown or brownish red-colored fur. Like its close cousin, the lynx, bobcats have their ears tufted. Bobcats are named after their tails which appear to be bobbed, or cut.
