The bobcat is one of the less seen animals up here but they are here. Their favored times to be out are morning and evenings.
Bobcats are larger than a fox or coyote although the skull looks about the same size or smaller. I think that is because of the short muzzle. Bobcats don't use their jaws as much as the canine types. They have claws on all four feet. Those of you with cats may know how that is. Rub the cat's belly. It automatically goes to kill mode and you try to get your arm back before you have to go to the emergency room.
Looks like some very large eye orbits. This indicates excellent eye sight. Better than any of the other four skull examples here which are the racoon, fox and coyote. Bobcats also have excellent hearing as they listen for rodents underground.
Next will be a skunk or one of the other smaller animals for Taxidermy Tuesday. In the meantime I have 3 items for Weapons Wednesday will be seen over the next three weeks.
