The Eurasian Lynx, Lynx lynx, is a stout wild cat species that occurs, as you might have guessed, in Europe and Asia. It prefers the cool, northern regions. In winter it gets a thick poofy fur coat, and with its huge, fluffy feet it can walk on powder snow. This lynx reaches a shoulder height of 75 cm/30" and a bodyweight of 38 kg/84 lbs. It can kill deer of up to 150 kg/330 lbs, and feeds on large prey more than any other lynx species.

Oh wow, the detail here is incredible, and the eyes look so alive.
Gorgeous lynx! Wonderful detail in that captivating gaze. We don't have lynxes where I live, but I do see bobcats on the occasion. Always makes my day when I can witness such an elusive predator. In the last 2 years, there has been lots of bobcat activity where I deer hunt, and I've been lucky enough to film them, including one that was solid black. They are aware of my presence long before I of theirs, but fortunately they are content with just passing by. I have heard tales of them mistaking turkey hunters on the ground for prey, which is why I was always advised to keep my back against a tree. And I myself have had to chase one off of a hog my father and I shot.
Hi and thanks! Interesting about the black bobcat. I haven't yet seen any melanistic wild feline over here ... closest was our cat Felix, who was all black and pretty wild!
Aha, I have two black cats who are pretty wild too. Their mother was feral when she had them. Even though I handled them and spent a lot of time with them since birth, they remain skittish when it comes to a lot of things.
Wow, you really putted a lot of effort in this piece it looks highly realistic to me.
You're very welcome😊, how are you?.
