$5.99USD

Named for its distinctively short tail, the bobcat is relatively small member of the Lynx family. These predators are usually nocturnal, so many people are unaware of their presence despite the fact that they range from Central America all the way up into southern Canada.

  • Scientific Name: Lynx rufus
  • Characteristics: Like all Safari figurines, this bobcat was hand painted and immaculately crafted for stunning life-like realism. Bobcats are known to be somewhat timid and reclusive, so make sure you give this feline somewhere to hide in case it’s feeling shy!
  • Size and Color: Bobcats are easily identified by their small size, reddish brown fur, and the black markings on their legs, face, and tail. Standing 2 inches tall and 3 inches long, this figurine is the size of a deck of cards stood on its side.
  • The Bobcat is part of the Wild Safari® North American Wildlife collection
  • All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free
  • History:

    An important symbol in Native American mythology, the bobcat was often depicted as symbol of duality. Classified as a species of least concern, the bobcat enjoys healthy population number throughout its endemic range. Although they are somewhat affected by urbanization and habitat fragmentation, their numbers are stable enough that such conditions are currently considered inconsequential.

    Present Status Other than in portions of the Midwest, bobcats are found all across the United States. They are also common in parts of Canada and Mexico. Biologists estimate that there are between 725,000 and 1 million bobcats in the wild on the North American continent. Populations of bobcats are stable and rebounding in areas across the continent.
