Bobcats. Bobcat (Felis rufus) nose to nose with its kitten. Bobcat kittens are born in spring, and a litter consists of between two and four individuals. Young bobcats are weaned by the time they are five months old, although they start taking solid food somewhat earlier. They stay with their mother until the following breeding season. Bobcats live throughout North America, except in the central region. They live alone in large, well-marked territories which they rarely leave. They eat mainly small mammals such as rabbits and rats, but have been known to attack and eat deer. Photographed in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, Montana, USA.
