A lynx is any of the four species of the medium-sized wild cat genus Lynx (Canada lynx, Iberian lynx, Eurasian lynx, or bobcat). The term lynx was taken from the Greek word lynx, which was derived from the Indo-European root leuk- (‘light, brightness,’) in reference to the lynx’s reflecting eyes.

Lynx have a short tail, tufts of black fur on the tops of their ears, big, padded feet for snow walking, and long whiskers on their faces. They have a ruff around their neck with black bars that resemble a bow tie, however it is typically hidden.

The body color ranges from medium brown to goldish to beige-white, with dark brown patches on the limbs and rarely on the body. The white fur on the chests, bellies, and insides of the legs of all lynx species is an extension of the chest and belly hair. The coloration, length of hair, and size of the paws of lynxes vary depending on the climate in which they live. They are short-haired, dark-colored, and have smaller, less cushioned paws in the Southwestern United States. To adapt to the snow, lynx develop thicker hair, lighter color, and bigger, more padded paws as temperatures get colder and more northerly. It’s possible that their paws are bigger than a human hand or foot.

Lynx issiodorensis, which existed in Europe and Africa from the late Pliocene to early Pleistocene, is thought to have developed into the four surviving species of the genus Lynx. Although the Pliocene felid Felis rexroadensis from North America has been postulated as an even older progenitor, it was bigger than any extant species and is not officially classed as a genuine lynx.


The Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) is the biggest of the four lynx species. European, Central Asian, and Siberian woods are home to this species. Eurasian lynx populations have been diminished or extirpated from much of Europe, where they are presently being reintroduced, despite its conservation classification of “least concern.”

The Eurasian lynx has a short, reddish or brown coat in the summer, which is replaced by a considerably thicker silver-grey to greyish-brown coat in the winter. The lynx hunts by stalking and leaping on its prey, which is aided by its habitat’s rough, wooded terrain. Roe deer are a preferred prey of the lynx in its wooded environment. It will eat whichever animal looks to be the easiest to catch, as it is an opportunistic predator like its kin.

The Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis), often known as the Canadian lynx, is a North American felid that can be found in woodland and tundra regions spanning Canada, Alaska, and parts of the northern United States. Historically, the Canadian lynx roamed from Alaska to several northern states in the United States. It was found in the transition zone between boreal coniferous and deciduous woods in the eastern states.
