    Sebastian Inlet near Vero Beach. Bobcat pounced on the shark, drug it onto the beach. The cat eventually dropped the shark who somehow found it's way back into the surf.

    Several years ago, I was driving on old 25W between Jellico and Stinking Creek. A bobcatcrossed the road in front of me. Then it headed straight to a vertical rock wall about 25' high on the side of the road. Without changing speeds, it walked right up that wall and disappeared into the woods. It was like one of those old Saturday morning cartoons.

    I normally root for the mammal in situations like this, but I will not root for a wildcat.

    One of the most interesting things I ever saw in nature was a snake sparring against a chipmunk. They went in circles looking at each other for a long time. I was just sure the chipmunk was gonna get it. But after at least two or three minutes the snake darted off with the chipmunk in hot pursuit. Another victory for team rodent.

    I watched a hen turkey fight a big fox squirrel for about 5 solid minutes one time. I have no idea why she wanted to fight that squirrel, but they went at. The squirrel was minding its own business at the base of an oak tree, she came up putting, then it was on. She kept flogging with her wings and trying to kick it, but he finally bit her face and ran up a tree.

    I've called one up turkey hunting. It didn't really make a sound, popped its head up out of a low spot, looked right at me, then meandered on. I was a little nervous.

    I've also watched one kill a squirrel during deer season. They make no noise walking through leaves.

    Yeah, I want no part of that bobcat.

    I've never seen a bobcat quite like that, but then I haven't seen one in Florida.

    Agreed, honestly when I first saw it I thought it was fake.

    I wonder if they can hybridize with cougars. Maybe it's mamma was a Florida panther.

    I was thinking the same thing. It looks a lot like a Florida panther, but with bobcat features.

    Or the picture is Photoshopped (unless Zero took the pic himself, in which case I would never claim it was faked).

    I was thinking panther as well, but with a bobcat tail.

    I guess they could, coyotes and wolves breed with dogs.

    Mountain lion maybe, but not a bobcat

    From the picture, it's kind of hard to tell how big it is. There is nothing reliable to compare it to. We don't kow how big that shark is. Cat does look long though.

    It definitely isn't a typical mountain lion either though.
