It has a tawny to beige coat that produces a bushy ruff around the neck and is speckled with brown and black. The tip of its tail and ear tufts are black. The fur is thick and silky in the winter, with hairs up to 10 cm long. Except during their mating season, they are normally quite quiet and are classified as nocturnal creatures.
Allison Burton was recently at her house when she noticed a fuzzy animal roaming down the streets. At first, she mistook it for a large dog, but she soon discovered it was a lynx.
Allison remarked, “I’ve never seen one in real life.” “Just seeing this gorgeous creature walking so near had me so delighted and in amazement.”
She dashed directly towards the lynx in order to snap such a rare sight, and we’re grateful she did. Surprisingly, the lynx did not flee or fear, instead walking calmly and leisurely through the streets. As a result, Allison was able to take as many photos as she could. Even though there were other strollers on the streets, no one seemed surprised by its appearance.
Burton described it as “just so majestic and pleased to be in its own little universe, doing its own thing.”
The lynx scurried back into the woods and disappeared into its own territory in no time. Alison couldn’t believe what she was seeing and couldn’t trust her eyes. It was a delightful surprise, to say the least!
To sum up, “Can’t believe this adorable kitten just went by my house,” as Alison put it.
