Bobcats

(continued from Page 2)

A bobcat’s eyes and ears are its most highly refined senses and it uses them to keep itself alive, either hunting or  avoiding harm.  Their sense of smell is not nearly as well developed, nor could it be, given the size and shape of their skulls.  A coyote’s long snout holds about eight times  more olfactory receptor cells than the short nosed ‘cats have room for.

Their big golden eyes are full of low-light cells called rods that allow them to navigate in the dark, and  stiff whiskers on either side of the nose help to get them through tight spots when no light is available.

Natural design makes the bobcat a supremely effective, resilient, and  enduring top predator in whatever habitat it chooses.
