In spite of its small size, the bobcat is a ferocious predator. It has the ability to kill an animal as large as a deer. The female bobcat teaches her young to hunt two weeks after they are born. If the bobcat makes a big kill, it will drag its prey to a safe location, eat what it desires, and then cover up the rest to return later to feed. This allows it to feed a number of times on a single kill.
The bobcat can be distinguished from other cats by its ear tufts and ruffs of hair on the sides its face. Its fur is mainly brown and beige with darker shades making up the spots.
