20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Florida Bobcat Lookin' Pretty

This is an image of a wild Florida Bobcat who now makes his permanent home at Bear Creek Feline Center. This lynx rufus was hit by a motoriston over the Memorial Day Weekend, 2022. After surgery to repair broken hip, this little guy could not be returned to the wild. He was placed with BCFC, a feline sanctuary near Panama City, Florida, for permanent residence by Florda Fish & Wildlife.
