Bobcat (Lynx rufus), northern Everglades
This is a young bobcat; i.e. naïve. All you have to do to get a GENERAL idea of age is to look at the face. I know, this is not in any wildlife journal, but it is true. If the animal is young you can see it immediately.
I was doing an Everglades survey and just happen to be along the intersection of the Broward/Palm Beach County line. I spotted this cat in that dark clump of leaves and twigs that is about 2 feet above its head. But it also immediately realized that I had spotted it. So it began backing down the tree. It was funny because several times this young and inexperienced animal got wedged into the forks of the branches of this Wax Myrtle. It finally fell the last several feet and bounded off.
