Lynx, kitten

Product 45 of 106

In Europe talking about the lynx, usually the Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) is meant. It is the largest cat of prey in Europe. Similar to all big cats, the lynx has been hunted excessively and exterminated systematically. A main reason is that the lynx was dreaded as being disingenuous. He hunted productive livestock like sheep and goats and his fur was well loved being precious.Indeed the lynx is a shy loner which only attacks humans when being cornered and not having another option to defend itself.
Naturally the lynx can be found in Scandinavia, the Carpathian Mountains and some countries of former USSR. In Middle-Europe it was completley extincted. A couple of yers ago first projects were started to resettle the lynx. Today we know that it is an important part in a well balanced ecological system and that it haunts firstly ill and weak animals.

After ca. 73 days two to five young kittens get born. They are able to see after 17 days, and after four weeks they start to eat their mother's prey. Next spring they will leave their mother and stay by themselves as mavericks.

Our little plush animal is ready to leave it's mother, but would more appreciate to mover together with her into a new home. it will explore the new home well, and the big ears with the noticeable tufts of hair will help to listen and localize sounds very well. The large furred paws act like snowshoes; the plush lynx is perfectly adjusted to fluffy carpets!
