Desert Bobcat

Live Bobcat at Sonora Desert Museum

Bobcat, Lynx rufus

This Bobcat picture was taken at Sonora Desert Museum just north of Tucson, Arizona in September , 2009.  The natural looking vertical rocky exhibit has two Bobcats but the ground where this one is sitting is about 20 feet below the surrounding area and, as a consequence, lacking in light.

There are two viewing areas, one above and this one below that has both windows and a clear area with thin vertical wires through which this was taken. Normally they are asleep on a rocky shelf but when dinner comes late in the afternoon they become attentive and mobile as shown here.
