The Lynx Rufus or to everyone else this animal is known as the Bobcat. These mammals are part of the big cat family. They are indeed to the word carnivores. Although they are not as big as a leopard or tiger the Bobcat definitely resembles a mixture of the two. They weigh from 11- 30 pounds, from head to tail they are about 26 to 50 inches, and can live up to 12 years of age. The habitats in which these wildcats reside are basically all over the U.S. with a greater population to the Northern parts of America. So why is it that I’ve never seen one? Well maybe because they are nocturnal and elusive, which means they are rarely spotted by people. This is a funny looking cat because in the face it looks like a house cat, but then the body is twice as big, they have long limbs, big paws, and the ears are big, pointy, and have long scattered pieces of hair. They get their name from there short black tail that looks like it’s been cut or “bobbed”. The bobcat is still hunted for their soft fur and the number of them that exists is about one million, and that’s just in the United States. This tutorial will show you how to draw a bobcat with only 6 steps. The instructions are super simple even kids can learn how do draw this over grown housecat. I had a good time sketching him out. I dig it when an image has a lot of details because it gives me more practice to draw. I am a big animal lover so I have a lot of National Geographic books in my house. I pick threw the pages and draw animals that I like. Have fun with this one it came out awesome.
