Why do lynx have ear tufts? — 1 Comment

  1. Was just thinking, if cats use their ears then the tufts wouldn’t be needed if it is the position of the ear that counts? Saw a documentary a few weeks ago about the wild north in scandinavia, where I happen upon this little fact that no one knows the reason for lynx tufts. I was watching another recently about how insects use certain features of their body for aestetic reasons. So, that got me thinking about how maybe they are for mating. Just a thought.
