Wild Cat Species in Texas

Texas Parks & Wildlife list 4 wild cat species in Texas (2011):
  1. Bobcat (Lynx rufus)
  2. Jaguarundi (Herpailurus yaguarondi) 
  3. Ocelot (Leopardus pardalis)
  4. Mountain Lion (Puma concolor) 
You can read about these cats starting on this page. You will be hard pressed to see these cats, particularly the jaguarundi and ocelot.

Note: the IUCN Red List does not include Texas in the range of either the ocelot or jaguarundi. The most northerly part of the range of these species is Mexico.

The other two wildcat species are listed by the Red List as being found in Texas.
