Eurasian lynx- comprehensive page

Overview: The Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) is the largest of the European wildcats. It is also the largest of the subspecies of lynx of which the American bobcat is part. The other is the Canada lynx. The habitat is typically forest and includes the rocky hillsides of northern Europe, Russia and central Asia. The coat is typically tawny colored with black spots. The ears have classic black ear tufts. Prey is commonly quite large – deer but includes hares and chamois. Home ranges can be very large at almost 300 square kilometers. Territory is marked in the usual way with urine spraying, deposits of feces and scratching and claw-raking. Scent is also deposited by rubbing. The range is enormous and the population, despite being extensively hunted, is said to be stable hence classified as Least Concern by the Red List.
