TOPIC: Bobcat or cougar?

Bobcat or cougar? 1 year 2 months ago #38362

This was caught on a game cam and was claimed it's a cougar. No certain proof of cougars in our area but the possibility is intriguing. Some of you may be more familiar with them than I am if you have them in your area.

I'm thinking it's just a bobcat due to the markings on its legs.... but it's ears do seem to be a bit rounded

Regardless, at least it has four legs and not two.

Is it possible those markings on the legs are shadows cast by the plants in view when the game cam took the pic?? That's what those marking look like they could be to me.
Bobcat vs Cougar, still not sure?

Bobcat IMO. The markings on the legs but you can kind of see the curl on the fur on the face. Man I've got a ton of them around here. I had a family in my orchard last summer.

Though...adolescent Cougars do have spots or stripes until they reach adulthood...helps them hide at a young age...

Hard to tell with that first photo!
