Lynxes look much like big house cats, except they have huge paws, fur collars, and black tufts on their ears.With sharp claws, pointy teeth, and an enhanced sense of sight, smell, and hearing, lynxes are natural predators who mostly prey on snowshoe hares.Due to loss of habitat and over-hunting, these elegant hunters are shrinking in population.

" The lynx belongs to the cat family. The cat family has big cats, such as tigers and lions. All big cats can roar. It has small cats, such as cougars and bobcats. Small cats can't roar." " 'The bobcat is a close relative of the lynx.' " " ' A lynx must be quick to catch a snowshoe hare.' " " ' A mother lynx raises her kittens by herself.' " "The father lynx does not help." " ' As the kittens get older, they follow their mother on short hunting trips.' " " ' These lynxes will soon be old enough to find their own home ranges.' " " Fur traders began hunting lynxes 200 years ago." "The North American Lynx Is shy. It likes to live alone. But people keep changing the land where lynxes live. So lynxes will keep hiding. They will move deeper and deeper into the cold, northern forest." " ' When trees are cut down, there is less room for lynxes.' " " ' What animals hunt lynxes? (above a photograph of a wolf) ' "
