The Bobcat is a wildcat native to the Americas. Bobcats are about twice as large as the domestic cat.
Bobcats have a short face and long whiskers that can be seen when they look around. Their ears are round with black spots on the top of them. They also have black-tipped tails, which is where they got their name from because it looks like a bobbed tail.
Bobcats live in a wide range of habitats, including swamps, deserts, and forests. They prefer areas near water where prey is abundant - such as ponds, lakes, and streams – but can also be found in hills or badlands far away from water sources.
