He described her as “undercover” and “secretive“Bobcats rarely offer onlookers a glimpse of their tufted ears and short tails,” according to wildlife officials.
Bobcats stick to shadows and hunt in the dark, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
That is until they are spotted “frolicking in the aisle.”
in Incredibly rare videowhich the Orange County government shared on multiple social media platforms on February 9, two bobcats were spotted Running across Orange County National Golf Center at Winter Garden.
“A fleeting glimpse of this secretive and beautiful creature can make anyone’s outdoor experience more enjoyable,” the FWC said.
Bobcats call Florida’s forests and swamps home, and can maintain a range of up to five or six square miles in rural areas, the FWC said. In urban centres, this range is reduced to one square mile.
The cats are about twice the size of a house cat and stand out from green lawns with brown fur with black markings, officials said.
Commentators were also shocked by the video.
“This is so cool because they definitely don’t let people see them too much, what a gem,” one person wrote on Instagram.
“Beautiful animals, I love Florida!” Another said.
“Protect those cats at all costs!” Someone else wrote.
Winter Haven is located about 50 miles east of Tampa.
