Náshdóíłbái's Patient Pounce

Náshdóíłbái's Patient Pounce

The Bobcat hunts animals of different sizes, and will adjust its hunting techniques accordingly. With small animals, such as rodents, squirrels, birds, fish and insects, it will hunt in areas known to be abundant in prey, and will lie, crouch, or stand and wait for victims to wander close. It will then pounce, grabbing its prey with its sharp, retractable claws.

This Bobcat was recently photographed in Navajo lands. Bobcats are named "Náshdóíłbái" in the Navajo language and are respected and greatly honored by the Navajo People.
