Bobcats are very elusive and are rarely seen.  They are relatively small, females weighing 10-18 lbs. and males up to 25 lbs. Bobcats mainly eat squirrels, rabbits, and other rodents.  Sometimes they will eat birds, eggs, small deer, and any kind of roadkill they can find if hungry.  As solitary creatures, they live most of their lives alone and do not overlap territory of each other often.

Interesting Facts:

  •  Females have 1-3 kittens a year in the spring.  In the fall, the young move away from their mother.
  • They are adaptable and reside in a wide variety of terrain from suburban, to semi-arid, to mountainous and wooded.
