I wonder about that. If it is it is a young one as it was not nearly the size of the adults I have seen. I defaulted to Curly tailed because we saw so many in this part of Florida.

Here is an interesting find from yesterday, a Green Treefrog. There is not much around here I haven't seen before, so it was fun to see something new. It seems we are just out on the very edge of their range.

I kept a couple of these as pets to help me earn my Reptile and Amphibian Merit Badge in Boy Scouts

Brown Basilisk is right.

This was an unusual site lying 15 feet from my bird feeder.  I wonder what the attraction was?  I guess they like watching birds also.BobcatFamily.thumb.jpg.7a20c8ec27acc15749758ec6bfdf0b25.jpg

I think they like eating the birds. Just saying! Still super cool visitors! WOW!!! All I get is feral house cats watching mine.

I only see three, care to explain where you think the 4th bobcat is.

I think there is another bobcat kitten lying down on the left side of the picture with its head pointed away.  Try to line up the bodies with the heads looking at you and there seems to be too many bodies for the faces you see.

I see three heads, and three bodies. If the body in the back is a 4th one, where is the rest of the middle one?

I never saw this family together again so I don't have any other data.  The body lying down on the left foreground is a different animal from the tail you see in the upper left.  Whether the left head is part of that body or the one in the bottom left is the question.

Nice work on the three cats.  

I admit that I have always thought there were three Bobcats in the picture, but the left cat's body is in an awkward position.  Bobcats usually don't have more than two babies, and I have seen several young cats walking together in the area that appear to be around a year old.  I can say that I never expected you guys to work this hard on it.  Nice job!
