Animal of the day – 2/04/2011 – The Lynx

Lynx - this one is the Iberian Lynx, and is the most endangered of all the lynx species.

The animal of the day is the Lynx. (Did you know: They are recognizable by their short tails, and tufts of hair over their ears! Bobcats are actually a type of Lynx [just a smaller variety].

Oh! A 30 pound lynx has bigger feet than a 200 pound mountain lion.  Their big feet act like snowshoes, allowing them to hunt effectively even in deep snow.
