Bobcats in love
Joyce Park stashed this in Science
Happy Valentines Day! Hope these recent photos of bobcat love (or stalking) from Mike taken at the UCSC campus bring you some joy on this Valentines! Mike notes that this big male persistently followed around this little female for almost an hour. Although she swiped and hissed at him for the first hour, his persistence paid off and she seems to have accepted him as a mate. Maybe we’ll see some kittens in a couple of months?
I love how you can almost hear the male bobcat saying, "Hey baby... how YOU doing?" Also how springy and perky are his muttonchops, his bobtail, and the long hairs on the tips of his ears.
They're so expressive!
