Episode #29

Elusive, intelligent, sly … just some of the ways to describe bobcats, a species at home in parts of Maryland and most of North America. Now, this charismatic cat will have a special home at the Maryland Zoo. Behind-the-scenes work has begun to renovate and remake an exhibit in the Zoo’s Maryland Wilderness for this native animal. To talk all about the updates, the changes and the wild, new addition we sat down again with the Zoo’s General Curator, Mike McClure, who has helped lead the effort to re-introduce a bobcat to the Zoo. Learn what’s being built, when it will likely be complete, and the planning that went in to the new exhibit. Plus, discover more about the bobcat, named Kilgore, who will call the new exhibit home including where he came from and how he arrived at the Zoo.
