Fun Fact
While hunting prey, bobcats will wait - watching motionless. When the time is right they will pounce on their prey, just like mountain lions. Bobcats are also known to have two types of dens. A main den which they will live in and have babies, then auxiliary shelters throughout their territory where they might take a nap for the day or hide in while watching prey.
