ABSTRACT
Bobcat, or Bay Lynx, a member of the cat family found in forested, swampy, or semiarid regions of North America from southern Canada to central Mexico. The bobcat is named for its short, "bobbed" tail. It is related to the lynx and is similar in appearance to that animal. It is distinguished by its stocky build, large paws, and ruff of fur extending from the ears to the jowl. The bobcat is buff to brown in color with a heavily streaked or spotted coat and a white belly. It is 30 to 35 inches (75 to 90 cm) long, including the 5-inch (13-cm) tail. It weighs 15 to 35 pounds (7 to 16 kg).
