A nocturnal mammal that often travels established trails, the Bobcat is rarely seen. It is the most common wild cat in North America, and is named for its stubby or bobbed tail. When hunting on the ground it may scream loudly to flush out prey. An excellent climber, it will den up in a hollow log during the day. While hunting for prey at night it will mark its territory with urine, feces, and tree scratches.
