About the Lynx
Lynx have a short tail, characteristic tufts of black hair on the tips of their ears, large, padded paws for walking on snow and long whiskers on the face. Under their neck, they have a ruff which has black bars resembling a bow tie although this often not visible. Body color varies from medium brown to gold to beige-white and is occasionally marked with dark brown spots, especially on the limbs. All species of lynx have white fur on their chests, bellies and on the insides of their legs, fur which is an extension of the chest and belly fur. The lynx's coloring, fur length and paw size vary according to the climate in their range. In the Southwestern United States, they are short-haired, dark in color and their paws are smaller and less padded. Lynx in colder northern climates have progressively thicker fur, the color gets lighter, and their paws are larger and become more padded (for snowy environments). Their paws may be larger than a human hand or foot.
