In the family Felidae, there are four species of short-tailed cats, including the Lynx. Forests in Europe, Asia, and Northern America are home to these animals. A Lynx has long legs, large paws, hairy ears, feathery soles, and a broad, short head. The tip of its tail and ear tufts are black, and it has a tawny to beige coat with brown and black spots. Fur is dense and smooth in winter, with up to 10 cm of hair. In general, they are very silent and are considered nocturnal animals except when they are mating.
Allison Burton was sitting at her home when she saw a furry animal walking down the streets. Initially, she thought it was a dog, but then realized it was a lynx.
Allison said, “I’ve never seen one in real life.” “I was so amazed to see such a beautiful creature so close up.”
We are glad she ran straight towards the Lynx to capture such a unique sight, and we thank her for doing so. Instead of running away or panicking, the Lynx walked gently and slowly through the streets. As a result, Allison was able to capture as many pictures as possible.
Burton said, “It was so majestic and happy to be in its own little world.”.
It didn’t take long for the Lynx to return to the wild and disappear into its own habitat. It was indeed an astonishing sight for Alison, who could not believe what she had seen. What a pleasant surprise!
As Alison concluded, “I can’t believe this beautiful kitty just walked past my house.”
