Lynx Facts

LynxHere are thirteen facts about the lynx.

1. Lynx is a feline genus that includes four cats: Canadian Lynx, Eurasian Lynx, Iberian Lynx and Bobcat.

2. Lynx are cats of northern hemisphere and have thus evolved into having long hair, as an adaptation for the cold winters.

3. The Desert Lynx or Caracal is not scientifically included in the Lynx genus, and resides in Arabia.

4. The word Lynx is derived from the Greek word meaning 'to shine' and is a reference to the cat's bright eyes.

5. Lynx cats are made distinct by their unique physical appearance - including short tails, prominent neck ruffs and long tufted ears.

6. Lynx usually reside in forested, mountainous territories and are thus stalk and ambush predators like most felines.

7. Despite being solitary by nature, some lynx cats (particularly females) have been observed hunting cooperatively.

8. Eurasian Lynx are the largest species of their genus and are found all across northern Europe and Asia.

9. Canadian Lynx are the second largest and are seen across Canada and Alaska.

10. Iberian Lynx are present in Spain and are amongst the most endangered of all wild cats.

11. Bobcats are the most adaptable member of this genus, and are perhaps the best mid-sized predators of North America.

12. Historical persecution for fur trade has meant that all the beautiful lynx cats have suffered heavily at the hands of man everywhere.

13. Today hunting of lynx is outlawed in most of their natural habitats and there are signs of recovery in numbers of some of the lynx species.

Lynx are really elegant and mysterious, I too am glad that they aren't hunted much now. To be honest i don't mind too much if they are stiill being killed in some places because if they are those countries don't deserve to behold their beauty.

If we all luvvv the lynx so much then why is it going extinct? If we care for these animals sooo much then i think we should do something! Come on lets do something, humans destroy their homes and them as well! We should at least try to save them now!! Come on now who's with me???!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Lynxes are my fav animal too! I am currently finding out all I can about them and plan to write a book (informational) and have it published so other people can see what awesome animals they are. This page really helped me out... Thanks! Also, it's not the Spanish lynx, it's the Iberian lynx.
Sorry, I'm kinda fussy about stuff like that. :D
