Big Cat Fact
Running Bear Bobcat is such a handsome old boy. BIG CAT FACT: Social System and Communication – Solitary. Male territories will overlap that of many females and even to some extent other males, but female territories are exclusive. Males and females only come together at the breeding season, which is December to April.
Videos of the Day
Elderly Siberian Lynx, Apollo, knows he has Keeper Marie Schoubert wrapped around his paw and she will bring whatever flavor sicle he wants. Take notice of his tail. The tip of his tail is black all the way around giving it the look of having been dipped in an ink well. This is unlike a bobcat tail that the tip is white on the bottom.
Checking in with Hoover ?
See what it’s like to feed tigers! Follow Keeper Brittany as she feeds two female tigers, Kali & Priya, at Big Cat Rescue while also training Level 4 Intern Fred on feeding Big Cats. We close the “Feeding Lockout” door before feeding the cats. The Feeding Lockout is just a smaller box attached to their much larger enclosures where the cats know they can come for food and fresh water. Once the food is safely in the lockout we then raise the door. While feeding the cats we get the best opportunity to Observe the cat. Are they chewing ok? Are they walking ok? We observe for a few minutes then move on to the next cat on the route. We feed the Big Cats a variety of foods every day and their diets are closely regulated by our Vets and are catered to the individual cat’s needs. “Red” is what we call beef.
