Have you ever heard of the Lynx? You might have heard it from stories, or maybe you have even encountered one!

These Lynx cats haunt the forests of North America, Europe, and Asia.

If you thought that these cats were like regular cats, oh my friend, you are so wrong! They do not attack unless it is for defense. They usually avoid humans, but if they feel threatened, the human is doomed.

You might not even be able to know its presence because it can quietly sneak up on its prey.

Canadian Lynx eat mice, squirrels, and birds but they would rather have snowshoe hares. Whereas Bigger Eurasian Lynx hunt deer and some other animals as an addition to the small animals.

The Lynx and Bobcats (bobcats are one type of Lynx) can be tamed and kept as pets. But if you want to own a Lynx while you already have a cat as a pet, you should probably NOT adopt a Lynx because cats are seen as prey to the Lynx.

Do you want to know something SHOCKING? It is hard to believe but a Lynx could kill a healthy wolf. But they never attack wolf packs as they would be killed, but not all wolves are in a pack.

That’s it for today’s article on Lynx’s! This is Devi Nandana signing out. Bye!
