I’ve seen a few bobcats there as well as the plentiful rabbits are a food source. The difference between a mountain lion is really simple. A long tail with a dark tip is a mountain lion. They’re usually bigger and more slender. A bobcat has a short stubby tail about 6 inches long. They’re usually smaller and look similar to a domestic cat.
