Bobcat

Lynx rufus

Bobcats have relatively short but powerful front limbs, a flexible spine, and muscular hind limbs that work together to make them quick, agile, and strong. While they generally hunt animals much smaller than themselves, bobcats have been known to take down prey weighing up to 10 times their own body weight.
