Lynx commun ou Loup-cervier

Lynx lynx
Mammalia - Carnivora - Felinidae 

Principalement originaire des régions boréales d'Europe et d'Asie, on le trouve également dans l'ouest de la Chine. Les plus grands et plus lourds spécimens vivent en Sibérie, les mâles y atteignant 38 à 45 kilos. Sa queue courte est une originalité dans la famille des félins sauvages; ses pattes sont épaisses et lui permettent de parcourir de longues distances dans la neige à la poursuite de ses proies qui consistent en tout ce qui bouge, des oiseaux à d'assez grands mammifères. Ils vivent dans les milieux forestiers et leurs principaux prédateurs sont les loups et les gloutons.
La couleur et les taches de sa fourrure sont très variables, ces dernières pouvant être inexistantes chez certaines populations.

Eurasian lynx   
Mainly native of the boreal regions of Europe and Asia it is also found in Western China. The largest and heaviest specimens live in Siberia, males reaching 38 to 45 kilos. The short tail is an originality in the wild cat family; its legs and paws are thick and allow it to travel long distances in the snow in pursuit of its preys which consist of birds and rather large mammals. They live in forest areas and their main predators are wolves and wolverines. The color and the spots of its fur are very variable, the latter can be non-existent in certain population. 


On peut remarquer des traces verticales sur le tronc où il fait ses griffes, révélant leur puissance:

On the tree trunk, one can notice the powerful vertical claw markings:

  6. A wonderful set of photos of the Lynx lynx, Noushka.
    It's a precious mammal, indeed.
    In Portugal and Spain, conservationists are working hard in the maintenance and increase of the population of the Lynx pardinus.

Hola amiga Noushka,una serie espectacular dedicada al Lince,una especie que aqui en España concretamente en el Valle de Aran quieren reintroducir despues de muchos años extimguida,tambien me gusto mucho la de las Agachadizas a la cual creo que has tenido un lapsus con el nombre cientifico,es Gallinago gallinago el que has puesto corresponde a la Chocha perdiz.Un fuerte abrazo amiga y feliz domingo,

  23. Hi Noushka. Just catching up after a vacation on the Scilly Isles.

    The Lynx is a splendid animal, and it looks quite ferocious in your beautiful images. Were you in any danger taking these?

    My best wishes for the remainder of the Easter weekend - - - Richard

  24. Precioso pero diferente al nuestro.. Quizá los ibéricos tienen mas bigotera.. Enhorabuena por las fotos.. Salud..

  25. How do you do it, Noushka? I've never even seen a wild lynx? These photos are spectacular! Aren't you "a rather large" mammal?
    Wild boar, lynxes, rutting deer ~ I hope your camera's lens is very long!

    1. I've caught up again! I'm actually a little disappointed because I surely love your photos. Happy Easter! Big hugs!

  26. Awesome pictures of avery nice animal. We have some in Spain, but population is very low and it is in danger of disappearance.

  27. Hello Noushka, wow this is so impressive. What a most wonderful cat this is. Those photos you took are amazing!
    Warm regards,


THANK YOU for your kind words!
