Friday mystery object #225 We’re heading towards the end of the cats this week – any idea what this slightly battered looking feline might be? Suggestions gratefully received in the comments section below! Share this:PrintEmailTwitterFacebookRedditLinkedInPinterestLike this:Like Loading... Related
Hmm, supra-orbital processes look a bit wrong, but leaning towards Ocelot
I’ve noticed that postorbital processes can be quite variable in cats 😉
In that case I shall lean all the way over to Ocelot

Going with the initial gut feeling – teeth, occipital crests, orbits a bit small but….Lynx rufus.
Missing the divided bullae and it has a premolar too many: http://www.cfr.msstate.edu/wildlife/mammals/pdf/Bobcat.pdf
I’m thinking either Felis concolor or Felis lynx canadensis…
As with the Bobcat, it lacks the divided bullae seen in Lynx

About the right size, but the Caracal has a relatively shorter and broader skull.
A bit on the big side.
