Bobcat Sneaks Up On Itself In A Mirror, Immediately Springs Into Attack Mode

Bobcat sees reflection in mirror

You can’t make this stuff up.

Nature is wild and these creatures always have to be on guard to make sure they have the best chance for survival. In many cases that means being on the lookout even for their own kind to make sure they have enough resources to get by.

Bobcats are medium-sized cats, with adult males weighing up to 35 pounds. They are typically are somewhere between 2 feet tall and 3 feet long, with a tail that is around 6 inches in length. Their diet consists of small mammals, such as rabbits, squirrels, and rodents, as well as birds and reptiles. They are also known to prey on larger animals, such as deer, when the opportunity arises and they need food.

Bobcats are skilled hunters, using their sharp senses and powerful legs to stalk and pounce on prey. They are also excellent climbers and will often ambush their prey from trees or other high vantage points. Bobcats are also fierce fighters and will defend themselves and their territory against other animals, including other bobcats.

Adult individuals typically avoid each other, so when two bobcats do cross paths, they may engage in aggressive displays, such as hissing and growling, to establish dominance. In some cases, bobcats may fight each other, this happens if they are competing for resources nearby.

This bobcat was immediately on edge when it spotted another bobcat. It is seen with its back hunched ready for action as it looks directly at itself in a mirror set up in the woods. The bobcat then approaches in slow, ready to fight this competing bobcat at any moment. As it gets close to the mirror and walks back and forth it realizes something isn’t right.

At least this guy is always ready.

Animals in mirrors always is pretty hilarious.

Mountain Lion Gets Ready To Square Up With Itself In The Mirror

The ol’ boy is mad at himself.

Mountain lions are one of the most vicious creatures to roam our lands. The lone ranger of North America. They spend most of their time alone… outside of breeding season. They are some of the best hunters out there, silent killers, who are precise with their strikes at the kill zones. And as the old saying goes “if you see one, it’s already too late.”

But, they aren’t fans of each other as another lion around is increased competition.

This lion came across a mirror in the woods and was immediately not impressed. His first reaction would normally be anger, thinking he had some competition of very similar size. But when he notices his own reflection, he approaches with caution as the cat staring back at him does the same. He paws around at the mirror very confused with the situation.

I’m surprised he didn’t take the mirror out, but it seems like his keen sense of smell might have given him pause. Since he didn’t smell another cat in the area, he didn’t sense an immediate threat.

What a great interaction to capture on camera.

Bobcat Clears Huge Gap In Louisiana

Holy moly…

Now granted I’m not familiar with the World Record long jump for a bobcat, but this has to be pretty close. Filmed in Pecan Island, Louisiana, even these crab fishermen were blown about by this display of athleticism:

“We were just out fishing for blue crab in Pecan Island, LA and this huge bobcat came out across the weir. I grabbed my phone thinking he was about to get wet, but he surprised us all.”

According to National Geographic, a bobcat can jump about 10 feet and just from the eye test, that gap looks bigger than 10 feet.

This fella cleared it with ease…

Two Bobcats Go Head To Head In Texas Family’s Front Yard

Texas is a special place.

Aside from the incredible country music, you never know what you might see… maybe it’s a jacked kangaroo, or truckers fighting, or an evicted dude obsessed with Bud Light, OR in this case, a pair of bobcats going at it hard in a family’s front yard.

The person filming said that the bobcats squaring off in the neighborhood “were walking down the street from house to house to marking their territory,” beating the piss out of each other along the way. Blink, and you might miss it.

These Texas cats are not messing around.

Bobcat Makes Short Work Of Duck On The Golf Course

Bobcats are pretty incredible animals.

It is amazing to watch them hunt, and see firsthand, how quickly they can adapt to the environment when they find prey to go after. Using the land to their advantage, they sneak up and attack in a flash.

It’s pretty cool to witness, and definitely not something that everyone gets to see.

Especially, on the gold course…

TMZ says the video took place in Arizona and golfers playing a round noticed the bobcat in the sand trap. They quickly realized what the cat was up to, using the sharp hills as a vantage point. A flock of ducks were eating away, clearly unaware of what was coming.

A golfer in the video commented.

“Look at this… they don’t even know he’s there.”

The bobcat creeps around the sand looking for the perfect place to attack from. In a split second, the cat tops the hill and somehow finds a new gear as it leaps and gets its claws into one of the ducks.

The golfers then make their way towards the Bobcat as it comes clearer into view, finishing off its kill and then takes off with its dinner to go. One of the golfers has an all-time quote when talking to an animal. In the words of Stephen A. Smith…

“You a baaad man, that’s a bad man”

He is right though, you can’t help but agree as the bobcat runs out of view. That is indeed a bad, bad man.
