while being the most plenteous of wildcats (which they're also known as) in north america, they're also among the hardest to spot because they're nocturnal. they also seem to like to be sneaky and surprise prey that oftentimes are much larger than they are. national geographic says that they hunt by pouncing with a death blow of a leaping pounce. this is a 3 metre pounce. causing death. an interesting thing i found is the association bobcats have with in american / indian folklore. the bobcat and coyote are referred to as the fog and wind and these are thought to be opposites. some interpretations seem to imply that this is a bit of an allusion to european and native cultures when they were first coming into contact regularly. felis rufus in moleskine
