    Spotted this guy a few weeks back in Merriitt Island during a hiking trip. It was a very foggy morning and we barely noticed him hiding in the weeds (first picture).
    Waited about 20 minutes and he finally came out of the weeds as he walked across the swampy marsh...stopping to look back at us when he noticed us.

    They are actually quite small.

    But would be a fairly large house cat ;) and I don't think I'd want to keep one personally. :p

    Love the first shot, unique and shows the cat in his natural environment. Reminds me of a magic eye...

    This cat has wonderful spotting. The ones I chase out in western Oklahoma are very plain and light. That open prairie is a bit different then florida marshes lol.

    Love the first shot. Do not keep them as pets. Dont even try it. They do not make good pets...at all. Beautiful shot though.

    Nice shots! This one looks a little bigger than the ones we have in NW FL. You can't keep a bobcat as a pet without a federal permit. They are a pain to keep. They need a special diet and never become tame. Some will learn to "tolerate" their owner.

    Great picture! I always wanted to see one down in florida. I almost did one day too, there were many sightings, and of course as soon as I left it showed up...
