FUN FACT: Female bobcats will not tolerate another female in their range, but males may tolerate other males. Young who cannot establish a territory may remain transient. Range size varies with available prey and is typically larger in arid grassland than in forests. Mainly nocturnal, bobcats spend their days in one of several dens that may be scattered about their territory.
