There is a family of bobcats at Sweetwater Wetlands in Tucson that is very used to being photographed, and I see pics posted almost every day on "backyard wildlife of the southwest" showing what incredible hunters (and eaters) they are! This particular family eats lots and lots of Coots.hikeaz wrote:I was impressed to read that "A bobcat consumes prodigious numbers of prey. It is estimated, for instance, that a female (mama) bobcat and three kittens to which she gave birth (avg.) at the beginning of her second year of life will consume at least 3800 rats, 700 cottontail rabbits, and 3200 mice by the end of her second year."
