Changeable like a lynx? Yes it is possible!


It is possible to lynx can changing like a cameleon? Yes, but not exacly like lizard :).  This misteriouse animal one more time show us, how we know not to much  about him.  People who never seen lynxs in wild, couldn`t know how they look like in real. Most people knows animals from beautyfull photos or movies, but reality show us something diffrent than these pictures.

Lynxs are very thin and  flexible animals ( we can compare their look to marathoner — he is slim and muscular). His anathomy allows to moveing through the bush and padding on the snow. He have got long and muscle legs, wide paws and sharp claws.  Average weight  in lowland lynxes is: male- about 25 kg, female- about 18 kg.

This animal have got beautyfull fur, wich is very practicle and usefull. Lynxes hair are dense and smooth. They have 3 type of hair. Down hair are very fluffy and gentle. Other type of hair are strong and they color depending on which parts they occur.  Lynxes fur is seasonal: summer and winter. In the summer their hair are „lighter” —causes that it does not overheat  and the color changeing to brown and fair red. This made an occasion to see shape of of this cat- they are very skinny. Summer color make them invisible in high grass.  In winter time  they fur is thicker than summer becouse down hair grows more intensive. This is very importatnt to lynxes — they have good isolation prevent  to get them cold.  Cause of thick and fluffy fur lynxs look like polish dounat!

We would like to presents a galery to show lynxes look in winter and summer season:
