Bobcats mounted by Reimond Grignon

Bobcat Taxidermy by Reimond Grignon
The bobcat is one of my favorite animals to mount. I love putting cats into all sorts of poses. This large cat was taken in Maine. Cats can become quite large up here.

This cat shown is a Blue Ribbon Winner in a National Taxidermy Competition. Close up pictures are located at the bottom of this page.

The fifty five pound cat is not unheard of and thirty plus pounds is very common. Bobcats are very shy and retiring, being seldom seen by the average person. These animals are extremely furtive, almost strictly nocturnal and masters of the art of concealment. They can live in an area and be completely undetected for years.

 

It has been estimated by the Fish and Wildlife Service that there are over one Million bobcats in the United States.

The bobcat although seldom seen, is recognized by almost everyone. It has a spotted coat, a face ruff, tufted ears and a bobbed tail. A bobcats tail tip is white with a black bar as in the photo above. A lynx tail tip is completely black.

I like to put a completely natural expression in the eyes and faces of these mounts as shown in the photo on the side. Cats are difficult to mount and to get this natural expression has frustrated many.

 

 

rabbit Taxidermy by Reimond GrignonThe Snowshoe Rabbit, or Varying Hare, is the natural food of the bobcat. Bobcats depend on this wild game animal more than any other to exist. It would be almost impossible for bobcats to survive a Maine winter without the snowshoe hare. Snowshoe hares are not true rabbits. Rabbits are born naked and blind.

Hares are born with fur and can see from birth. The hares have a much larger territory and when run by dogs can take a barking dog right out of hearing range. Hare also do not hole up in burrows as most rabbits do. They instead with hunker down in brush piles or under witches brooms as this fine mounted animal is shown doing.

 

The two bobcats below are more examples of award winning taxidermy work.

Bobcats love to eat Rabbits and whatever else they can catch such as baby fawn deer in the springtime. They would be a favorite food but hard to find.  Large Bobcats can also take down much larger deer as well. 

fawns Taxidermy by Reimond Grignon

The little whitetail fawn pictured here were mounted for our museum by Mr. Grignon and are still on display. The kids that come into the museum really enjoy seeing the young fawn.

I try to put in great detail into my mounts. Notice the fine lines and folds of skin put into these mounts to make them look as natural as possible. These mounts are very difficult to do.

 

 

baby deer Taxidermy by Reimond GrignonFawns when born and during nursing have no scent. They are taught to lie perfectly still when danger threatens them. The spots and their coloration make them very difficult to see.

They usually will lie down in denser undergrowth then seen here. They hold so still that humans have been known to stumble upon them. When found you should leave them alone and immediately leave the area. You can rest assured that the mother deer is very close by and has not deserted its baby. If you touch them you are placing your scent upon them making life much more hazardous for the fawn. Both the above fawns were road kills.

This Little bobcat kitten is sneaking up on a something he thinks is food.  He might get a surprise when he catches it. He is trying to catch a skunk by the tail in my museum.
