Easily identified by the black tuft of hair on the tips of their ears, lynx have long been part of legends and folklore throughout North America, Europe, and parts of Asia. The lynx is a solitary large cat and prefer to hunt at night when their sharp ears can detect prey. Lynx have large paws with fur on the bottom, which helps them to climb, walk through snow, and hunt. Next time you hear a legend of the lynx or see Junior on our tail, remember how unique these big cats are.
