Lynx mammals

The lynx is like a cat in appearance, but much larger than a cat, and belongs to a medium-sized beast.

The average body length of lynx is 85-105 cm, the tail length is 20-31 cm, and the weight is 20-30 kg. The lynx has a stout body, long limbs, a very short and thick tail, and the tip of the tail is blunt and round. The base of the ears is wide, with black tufts on the tip of the ears, long drooping hairs on the cheeks, and long hair on the abdomen. The color of the back is darker, reddish brown, and the middle part of the coat is darker; the abdomen is light yellowish white; the coat around the eyes is whitish, and there are 2-3 rows of obvious brown-black longitudinal stripes on the cheeks. The hair on the back is the thickest, and the body is dotted with dark spots or small stripes, which are conducive to its concealment and foraging. The coat color of the back varies greatly, and there are various color types such as milk gray, tan, khaki, gray grass yellow-brown and light gray-brown. The tone of some parts is relatively constant, such as the upper lip is dark brown or black, the lower lip is white to dark brown, and there is a brown-black spot on both sides of the jaw, the tail is generally pure black or brown, and the front and outside of the limbs are spotted. The chest and abdomen are uniform dirty white or milky white.

Its winter fur is long and dense, and in winter, the big paws are covered with long and dense fur, which can move in the thick snow, which is equivalent to providing the effect of snowshoes.
