Additional Information

The Bobcat occurs over all of Texas.  Bobcats occupy a variety of habitats and have adapted to many environments.

In much of Texas the bobcat remains the largest predator, hanging on where the bear, wolf and cougar have long been eliminated.

Bobcats are trapped for their furs in Texas, and a few Texas counties still offer a bounty on bobcats.

Bobcats are not afraid of dogs as are cougars, but will head for the nearest tree when out numbered.  Few dogs, even though they may outweigh the bobcat several times, are a match for the feisty cat.  In a one-on-one battle, the bobcat always wins.

Like the cougar, each bobcat establishes a home range that largely defines the cat's travels during its lifetime.  Typical bobcat cover is in woods, canebrakes, brush, ravines, creek bottoms or other overgrown areas.  Many live very near a farm or town without anyone ever knowing they are there.

Those who do see a bobcat in the wild should consider themselves fortunate.

Color Reproduction

Beckendorf color reproductions are developed using four color process printing on fine white paper. This advanced technique utilizes separate color plates for each of the primary colors, plus black. High-resolution digital scans and special process inks are utilized to yield beautiful, accurate reproductions.

About the Artist - Charles Beckendorf

Charles grew up in Mathis, Texas, where he had the opportunity to spend hours on large ranches. Generous land owners gave him permission to wander freely over their ranches and he observed creatures in their natural surroundings. He developed a lifelong love of nature, whether it be in the tiniest of flowers or the largest of animals. It was at this time that he became a true naturalist.
