Bobcats are solitary animals. Males and females are only together when it is mating season. They are mainly nocturnal animals, but can also be very active at dawn and dusk.
Their diet mainly consists of rabbits and hares, but they also eat rodents, sheep, deer, and birds. The bobcat creeps up on its prey and kills larger prey by biting at the base of the skull. During a nightlong hunt, a male can travel as far as 25 miles to find prey.
