★ A Lynx is a wild cat found mostly in the parts of Europe, Asia and North America.The word Lynx is derived from the Greek word meaning 'to shine' and is a reference to the cat's bright eyes.

★ This feline genus has four sub-species namely Eurasian Lynx, Canadian Lynx, Iberian Lynx and the Bobcat.

★ Due to cold environment, they have evolved into having long hair.

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

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

★ Once, a major target for fur, 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.
