A yellowish- to reddish-brown cat streaked and spotted with black, with long hind legs, a short, broad face and a short (“bobbed”) tail. The backs of the prominent, pointed ears are black with a central light-colored spot; ear tufts, when present, are black. Both sexes look alike. The pupils of the eyes are elliptical in bright light but nearly round in dim light. Bobcats and their dens have a very strong odor.
