Is it a Bobcat?

Post by allcat » Fri Dec 06, 2019 2:08 pm

I had a guy today tell me that the statue in the middle of campus is a Lynx. Is anybody out there a biologist or really know the difference ?


Now sorry for caring about Cat/griz too much. I've been properly chastised by the coach of the other team. :-^

Lynx has an extra long tuft of fur on the top of its ears I believe

The guy is a Bobcat. He said a friend of his that is a biologist said it has the tall back legs of a lynx. I don't know that I would be able to truely tell the difference.

I looked it up, I guess I just need to look at the statue.

Believe the longer back leg is accurate also. I believe a bobcat has a longer back leg proportionally than a regular cat. So hard to tell unless your a person that has the pleasure of working with both or you see them standing side by side.

Wow, thanks for sharing, that's really cool. Never knew these differences. Learned something new today!
