This is the impressive moment a fearless bobcat made a huge leap across a weir on a lake in Louisiana.

The extreme athletic feat of nature occurred in Pecan Island, Louisiana, United States, and has certainly caught the eye.

The bobcat managed to get from one side of the expanse of water to the other without getting wet. Travelling across the weir to avoid the water, the bobcat appears to hit an obstacle with a gap in the barrier.

But the imposing feline climbs on top of the structure and sets itself for a huge jump to clear the water. The bobcat composes itself before springing into the air in effortless fashion.

In one stunning move the bobcat reaches the weir on the other side with ease. Using its momentum from the leap the bobcat bounces along the top of the weir until it reaches a plank of wood, showing off its impressive athleticism once more.

The bobcat finishes off its adventure with a smaller jump from the plank of wood to the end of the structure.

The bobcat is an adaptable animal. It prefers woodlands—deciduous, coniferous, or mixed—but unlike the other Lynx species, it does not depend exclusively on the deep forest. It ranges from the humid swamps of Florida to desert lands of Texas or rugged mountain areas. It makes its home near agricultural areas, if rocky ledges, swamps, or forested tracts are present; its spotted coat serves as camouflage.

The population of the bobcat depends primarily on the population of its prey; other principal factors in the selection of habitat type include protection from severe weather, availability of resting and den sites, dense cover for hunting and escape, and freedom from disturbance.
