A good gift for the hunter and lovers of animalism – Bronze sculpture Lynx on the hunt
Felis lynx was the scientific name used in 1758 by Carl Linnaeus in his work Systema Naturae.
The Eurasian lynx is the largest of the four lynx species, ranging in length from 80 to 130 cm (31 to 51 in). And standing 60–75 cm (24–30 in) at the shoulder. The tail measures 11 to 24.5 cm (4.3 to 9.6 in) in length.
Weigh from 18 to 30 kg (40 to 66 lb)
Lynx prey largely on small to fairly large sized mammals and birds. Among the recorded prey items for the species are hares, rabbits, marmots, squirrels, dormice, other rodents, mustelids (such as martens). Grouse, red foxes, wild boar, chamois, young moose, roe deer, red deer, reindeer and other ungulates.
The main method of hunting is stalking, sneaking and jumping on prey, although they are also ambush predators when conditions are suitable. In winter certain snow conditions make this harder and the animal may be forced to switch to larger prey. Eurasian lynx hunt using both vision and hearing, and often climb onto high rocks or fallen trees to scan the surrounding area. A very powerful predator, these lynxes have successfully killed adult deer weighing to at least 150 kg (330 lb).
